New analysis about Moncton’s experience with privatized water pokes holes in the privateers’ arguments that it is a success.

The Council of Canadians has published Lessons from Moncton’s water privatization experience to counter claims that it is a model for other communities. CUPE contributed to the analysis, which is a useful tool for local activists defending public water services.

The article draws on research by economist John Loxley, and details the higher costs that come with privatized water services.
