Conservative budget doesn't make country fairer, safer or better

In spite of its claims, the latest Conservative budget is not going to make Canada better or safer, nor will itmake it fairer, according to the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC).

"The federal budget proposes to establish a $25-million office to foster public-private partnerships (P3s), when what Canadians need and deserve are quality public services that are publicly funded and delivered," says PSACNational President John Gordon.

The budget calls for $1.26 billion over 7 years in a national fund for unspecified public-private partnerships, as well as $2.1 billion for gateways and border crossings, including the new Windsor-Detroit access which is already earmarked as a P3 initiative.
