Six-Day War, 50-Year Occupation: What Really Happened in June 1967?


From: Larry Kazdan
To: Toronto Star <lettertoed@thestar.ca>
Subject: Re: Infrastructure bank may bear big portion project risks: documents, June 5, 2017 

The Trudeau Liberals claim that having private partners will insulate the government from risk in infrastructure projects.  But if these partners go bankrupt or otherwise exit their participation, the public will still demand that any bridges, roads, water systems or electrical utilities continue operations. The federal government will be forced to step in and clean up the mess, whatever the cost.

The risk transfer claim is just another spurious argument by the Liberals to justify a profiteering Infrastructure Bank that will benefit well-connected elites at the expense of the public, who will end up paying excessive fees, charges and tolls.   

1. Infrastructure bank could insulate Canada from risky proposals, says Sohi, Jordan Press, May 18, 2017

"The government will be taking on financial risk regardless of what projects go ahead, but only on its portion of the funding, not the entire cost of the project, Sohi said in an interview Wednesday with The Canadian Press."

2. The glorious gouging of the public purse
 William Mitchell is Professor in Economics and Director of the Centre of Full Employment and Equity (CofFEE), University of Newcastle, NSW, Australia

"The real problem with the PPPs in this regard is that is a falsehood that the risk shifts from the public to the private sector. Who ultimately bears the risk? The risk premium in private financing is based on the fact that a private entity can become bankrupt with its product and service exiting the market. With an essential public service it is a fantasy to say that the PPP contract transfers risk to the private sector.

If the private partner defaults, the public always has to pick up the pieces. There is no real risk transferred."
