“The collapse this week of the privatization giant Carillion is just one more painful reminder that privatization can’t be trusted, and we can’t trust people like Clark who continue to push privatization." — Warren (Smokey) Thomas, OPSEU President
“It appears the big grocers have told privatization czar Ed Clark that those public safety restrictions are an obstacle to profits so get rid of them." Warren (Smokey) Thomas, OPSEU President
The question remains why the Liberal-appointed panel refused to recommend bringing agency stores back into the LCBO as a way to increase revenue.
“Clark's recommendation on the LCBO, combined with the no-privatization-position of Premier Wynne and Finance Minister Sousa, should put this issue to rest for a long, long time. Let’s move on to other policy issues, like building our public services." — Warren (Smokey) Thomas, OPSEU President.
