We Own It

Maybe you’ve notice there’s something wrong in our communities. Highways aren’t being plowed.  Long waits at hospitals. Inadequate care for our most vulnerable. The problem is privatization.  Our money isn’t being reinvested in our communities.

Communities across the province are realizing public = better. Because when it’s public, We Own It. We built. We paid for it. We Own It!
