Saskatchewan embraces P3s

The Saskatchewan government is setting up a new secretariat to oversee private-public partnerships (P3s). The goal is to get the private sector engaged with capital projects for roads, schools, and health care facilities. The threshold for the size of capital projects under consideration is $25 million.

This is welcome news. Partnerships BC has overseen similar projects in British Columbia for years and saved taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars. It's something the CTF has recommended for years that Saskatchewan do.
