PublicValues.ca tells the story of privatization in Canada

NUPGE among supporters of new website

Ottawa (11 March 2008) - StraightGoods.ca is pleased to announce the addition of a new member to its family of websites: www.PublicValues.ca .

The site is an online magazine presenting news about privatization and the fight to preserve public services, resources, spaces and enterprise. It will be updated frequently. Readers are encouraged to submit ideas and articles.

"The site is in Beta format right now," Straight Goods says.

"We're still test-driving it, and we have yet to publish all articles in French on its sister site, Valeurspubliques.ca. As we get rolling, we expect to be publishing in both official languages as simultaneously as possible.

"We are thankful for the support of the partners backing PublicValues.ca. In 2008, they include National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE) and Ontario Secondary School Teachers (OSSTF). Founding partners include the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW)."
