As chair of the Post-Secondary Education Task Force of Public Interest Alberta, I am happy to promote what will prove to be an amazing event. Please join me and so many others from the progressive community as we learn more about the processes used to privatize public services and what we as a community can do to take action against it.

Following the presentation, Q&A forums will provide an opportunity to share strategies on how to promote public solutions and engage citizens to take action on P3s.
