Building a pro-public movement in Canada

Abstract: 

 

The global "antiprivatization" movement has been remarkably successful at challenging, and even reversing, the threat of privatization, but it has not yet established an euqally effective "pro-public" counterpart. In many cases, the default position has been to protect the status quo rather than propose new models of public service delivery. This article discusses the potential for building such a pro-public movement in Canada, exploring opportunities for change and the challenges ahead, using th einternational experience as a reference point.
