The policy priorities recently announced by the Canadian Steel Producers Assn. (CSPA) are strangely familiar. The four points it was striving to make when it met with federal politicians during the first week of April included building a stronger manufacturing base, pursuing fair trade, creating a better balance between environmental and economic policy, and developing a more skilled workforce.

Sounds like a number of union demands that have so far fallen on deaf ears. But, the association will be making that pitch in Ottawa, perhaps to a friendlier audience.
