Judy Darcy, CUPE National President is in Calgary to host an open forum on privatization and public services. The forum, entitled “Go Public!” will bring Calgarians from a wide variety of backgrounds together with CUPE members and a panel of experts to discuss, strategize and find solutions.

“Communities feel the devastating impact of privatization most directly. Calgarians are not alone in the fight for public services and community democracy. This is not just another night of talking heads, its about putting our heads together to find solutions,” says Darcy.
