MEDIA ADVISORY: Panel Discussion Nov. 13 – Transparency and the right to know how our money is spent

Halifax – Please join us for a public panel discussion on November 13, 2018. Hear more about the call for public accountability legislation in Nova Scotia, and improved disclosure rules for the procurement of public services and infrastructure.

LOCATION: Halifax Farmers Market, 2nd Floor

TIME: 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Tuesday, November 13, 2018


  • Keith Reynolds, Policy Analyst with the Columbia Institute
  • Chris Parsons, Coordinator of the Nova Scotia Health Coalition
  • Christine Saulnier, Director of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives – Nova Scotia

Moderated by Erica Butler, freelance journalist and transportation columnist with the Halifax Examiner.

A more transparent and cost-effective approach to public procurement will ensure we can afford all the hospitals, highways, education, long term care and other public services we rely on.

Nova Scotians should demand new disclosure requirements and reporting standards for P3 contracts. There should be no secrets when public money is spent on public infrastructure and services.
