Are you concerned about the commercialization by stealth of the public sector in Canada? Want to know more about how Canada’s economic elites are taking control of public institutions? Are you bothered that even social activist organizations increasingly look and act like multinational corporations while NGOs pursue partnerships with the very corporations they oppose?
You’re not alone.
Join the editors and contributors of the newly released collection Corporatizing Canada: Making Business Out of Public Service for a book launch and discussion of the threat neoliberal corporatization poses to democratic decision-making and the public at large.
