Public services. They’re yours to defend.
No one campaigns on cuts to public services. It’s a losing proposition, and parties know it. But little by little, right-wing governments cut and privatize services when we’re not paying attention. They say one thing at election time and do another after they’re elected.
They contract out, create costly public-private partnerships, sell off parts of our Crowns bit by bit, and keep funding levels for services below the rate of inflation in a bid to slowly starve them.
There are dozens of sneaky ways that right-wing governments manage to cut services without sounding any big alarm bells. And today, the cumulative damage done to our public services is reaching a breaking point.
We are public service voters. We are a group of citizens who recognize that our public services must be actively defended — not only during elections, but by holding our elected representatives to account in-between elections — when no one else is watching.
