CUPE and the Polaris Institute were at PPP Canada’s annual general meeting yesterday, asking questions and tweeting about the problems with public-private partnerships.

We asked PPP Canada to fully disclose the figures behind its recommendations to privatize. We also questioned the agency’s dogged pursuit of water P3s in the face of public opposition and the growing move to end privatization contracts in Europe.

We also live-tweeted the meeting, highlighting the P3 facts and figures that weren’t being discussed at the meeting. Read the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #noP3s.
