Has anyone noticed how the propaganda produced by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) seems to be growing more inept of late?

Misleading arguments and anti-union bias have long characterized many of the claims made by the Regina-based CTF, which claims to be a non-partisan "citizens' group," although its only legal members are in fact the five members of its board, making it a classic example of an astroturf organization.

Back in the day, though, a reader could be reasonably confident the organization's data were accurate, even if its conclusions were unsound.
