Webinar: A Public Infrastructure Bailout

Webinar on the high stakes of public-private partnerships, the Canada Infrastructure Bank, and a green & just economic recovery from COVID.
About this Event

The Canadian government is planning to spend billions on infrastructure to stimulate the economy and recover from COVID-19, including new transit projects and green infrastructure.

But the federal Canada Infrastructure Bank invests in public-private partnerships, which cost the public more and are less accountable to us.

Join experts and activists to learn about infrastructure privatization in Canada and why projects like transit and water must be publicly owned and democratically controlled.

Featuring:

  • Vi Bui, Council of Canadians
  • Stuart MacKay, Ottawa Transit Riders
  • Robert Ramsay, Canadian Union of Public Employees
  • Moderated by Vincent Puhakka, TTCriders
