Tell your MLA we have the right to know how our money is spent
Welcome to CUPE Newfoundland and Labrador’s call to establish transparency in disclosure and reporting of public-private partnerships (P3) contracts through legislation.
For too long, P3 contracts have been a black hole for accountability and transparency, with generally negligible disclosure by the provincial government. Meanwhile, the use of P3 deals has accelerated while providing sweet deals to corporations and private investors.
We need to stop the drain on our finances and one of the first steps we can take is to legislate disclosure and reporting of how our money is spent in P3 deals. There should be no secrets when public money is spent on public infrastructure and services. We have the right to know.
