The Nova Scotia government has launched a review of public private partnerships, looking at the costs and benefits of various P3 deals that were signed by the previous Liberal government.

In announcing the review, the finance minister Neil LeBlanc says the Tories want to make sure every dollar is spent wisely.

CUPE Nova Scotia has been pressing the new government to abandon plans for P3 schools and ensure that the water treatment plants in the Halifax Harbour cleanup are publicly owned and operated.

This is our chance to get in there and expose P3s for what they are a rip off for taxpayers, workers and residents, said Betty Jean Sutherland, president of the Nova Scotia division.
