Regina: CUPE will hold a news conference in Regina on Tuesday, March 24, at 10:30 a.m. to release the results of its research project into public private partnerships in Saskatchewan and across the country.
The news conference coincides with the launch of CUPE’s television ad campaign encouraging residents to get the facts about P3s.
Where: The news conference will take place in the CUPE boardroom, 3731 East Eastgate Drive, near the Husky truck stop, just off Victoria Avenue.
Who: CUPE Saskatchewan President Tom Graham and CUPE researcher Guy Marsden will participate in the news conference.
Earlier this year, the Saskatchewan government established a Public Private Partnership (P3) Secretariat to “explore the possibility of private sector companies being involved in large-scale infrastructure projects such as roads, schools and health-care facilities.”
CUPE has conducted research into public private partnerships, examining case studies across the country. As CUPE’s research shows, the Saskatchewan government’s support for P3s is cause for concern.
