In February 2002 CUPE arranged a technical briefing on public private partnerships (PPPs) for the Commission on the Future of Health Care in Canada (the “Romanow Commission”.) The collective knowledge and experience of Dr. Allyson Pollock, Professor John Loxley and lawyer Steven Shrybman is unparalleled and they did not hesitate to tell the Commission that PPPs do not save money, do not improve service and place Canada’s health system at risk under Canada’s trade agreements. Dr. Pollock outlined the British experience, Professor Loxley detailed his analyses of Canadian PPPs and Steven Shrybman highlighted the implications of PPPs and trade agreements.
