Dear Sir/Madam, It came as welcome news when the province announced two new facilities would begin construction later this year. But I’m concerned that using public-private partnerships to build them will saddle us with more debt. There is plenty of evidence to show that P3s are the wrong way to finance public infrastructure. I’m urging you to make public the full details of the Corner Brook value-for-money report and business case – before final decisions are made and any contracts are signed. In addition, the Province should mandate: • Public consultation • The involvement of a provincial auditor • Public-Private Partnership Transparency and Accountability legislation that demands a preliminary analysis – available to the public – outlining the risks, costs and benefits of using a P3 We are going to pay for these projects one way or another. We might as well build our health care facilities publicly. Let’s own and control them ourselves, for the public interest and not for private profits. Sincerely,
When you sign this petition an email with the following text will be sent to the targets of this particular campaign. You may customize this text.
