Building a pro-public movement in Canada



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.
