Transparency and the right to know how our money is spent @ Delta St. John's, Salon FG | St. John's | Newfoundland and Labrador | Canada

Please join us for a public panel discussion at the Delta Hotel in St. John’s on November 14, 2018. Hear more about the call for public accountability legislation in Newfoundland and Labrador, and improved disclosure rules for procurement of public services and infrastructure.

Please RSVP below

Speakers will include:

  • Keith Reynolds, Policy Analyst, Columbia Institute
  • Allison Coffin, Economist, Memorial University

Moderated by journalist Drew Brown, contributor to CBC NL, The Guardian, The Independent, Vice Magazine, and others.

Lack of access to information hides the true costs of public-private partnerships (P3) and privatization. There is a “black hole” for transparency and accountability in Newfoundland and Labrador.

P3 deals create “debt bombs” that weigh heavily on future generations. A more transparent and cost-effective approach to public procurement will ensure we can afford all the hospitals, highways, education, long term care and other public services we rely on.

Newfoundlanders and Labradorians should demand new disclosure requirements and reporting standards for P3 contracts. There should be no secrets when public money is spent on public infrastructure and services.

Please RSVP
