Attention: Assignment Editor, Business/Financial Editor, News Editor, World News Editor, Government/Political Affairs Editor OTTAWA--(CCNMatthews - May 27, 2005) - Canadian Labour Congress executive vice-president, Marie Clarke Walker, will chair the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives' Panel, Living with Uncle: Canada - US Relations in a Time of Empire.

This panel discussion will feature economist Andrew Jackson, director of social and economic policy at the Canadian Labour Congress. Jackson will present his take on the creeping agenda embraced by leaders among Canada's business elite for deeper integration between our country and the United States.

According to Jackson, this agenda stands as a flashpoint for future and potential conflict because its sponsors, through failure or neglect, remain blind to its inherent contradictions.

Jackson's presentation will be part of the celebration of the 25th Anniversary Conference of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA).

Living with Uncle: Canada - US Relations in a Time of Empire , is at the National Arts Centre (Le Salon). Jackson's panel starts at 1:30 p.m.

The Canadian Labour Congress is a proud, long-time supporter of the CCPA.

The Canadian Labour Congress, the national voice of the labour movement, represents 3 million Canadian workers. The CLC brings together Canada's national and international unions along with the provincial and territorial federations of labour and 137 district labour councils.
