CUPE is calling on the Liberals to scrap their plans for a bank of privatization. The investor-driven Canada Infrastructure Bank takes aim at our roads, bridges, water and transit systems.
As Canadians, we’ve built this infrastructure together. It belongs to us all, and it’s not for sale.
The Liberals are trying to rush the bank through, under cover of a 300-page omnibus budget bill, Bill C-44. CUPE outlined the dangers of the Liberal plans to the House of Commons finance committee and the transportation, infrastructure and communities committee earlier this month. The finance committee starts its clause-by-clause review of the bill this week.
