Town hall to save Thunder Bay from privatization
Thunder Bay is being starved of the resources and public services it needs because Ontario’s politicians continue to sell-off and privatize services like Hydro One. A special town hall meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 6, will address this increasingly urgent issue, and give people the information they need to start fighting back.
- When: Wednesday, Sept. 6, 6 pm
- Where: Victoria Inn, 555 Arthur St. W
- Who: All are welcome. Guest speakers will include We Own It mobilizers Erin Smith-Rice and Mike Lundy
“Thunder Bay is a strong, proud community,” says Mike Lundy, a local correctional officer and one of the organizers of the town hall. “But like any other community, Thunder Bay needs strong public services to remain healthy, safe, and prosperous for all.
“Privatization weakens public services because it costs more and deliver less. When we stop privatization, Thunder Bay will benefit.”
Municipal and provincial politicians and candidates have been invited to the town hall. Members of the public will be encouraged to tell their politicians about the public services they depend upon and to encourage the politicians to stand up for those services.
“Communities across Ontario, Canada, and the world are reaping real benefits by saying no to privatization and yes to public services,” says Erin Smith-Rice, a developmental services worker and another organizer of the event.
“It’s time for Thunder Bay to reap those benefits, too.”
