Andrea Muehlebach, Associate Professor at the University of Toronto, Mississauga Campus, who outlines three case studies from Berlin, Paris, and Italy.

Robert Ramsay, senior researcher for CUPE, makes a convincing argument that the Canadian Infrastructure Bank is using Mapleton as a test case for privatizing municipal water systems elsewhere in Ontario and across the country.
