A few months ago (Dec. 2015), CUPE Nova Scotia ran a series of newspaper ads across the province warning Nova Scotians about the perils of P3s (so-called public private partnerships).
The ads alerted people to the fact that Stephen McNeil’s Liberal government is seriously considering several new P3s.
See the ads here:
This week we learned that the provincial government is looking at the P3 model to replace the Victoria General Hospital in Halifax. See that news story here:
This despite a report to the premier from one of his own Deputy Ministers (Peter Vaughan) which warned against the dramatically higher costs for taxpayers, created by P3’s.
