Patrick Brown says the privatization of the 407 “didn’t work out as people had hoped”

Patrick Brown, the Progressive Conservative leader, attended on Friday, May 19, 2017 an event hosted by the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU)-supported We Own It campaign in front of Central North Correction Centre in Penetanguishene.

In his speech at the event, Brown implicitly criticized the privatization policy of the current and previous provincial governments. “We have to learn from the mistakes of the past [The privatization of] the 407 didn’t work out as people had hoped,” Brown said.

OPSEU First Vice-President/Treasurer Eduardo (Eddy) Almedia asked Brown to sign a pledge to implement a “rigorous and credible review” of ant future privatization proposal.

According to OPSEU’s statement, Brown took a copy of the pledge but refused to sign it, saying that he and his caucus would consider it.
