FCM releases new report on public-private partnerships



    OTTAWA, Aug. 31 /CNW Telbec/ - Can public-private partnerships (P3s) meet
the infrastructure needs of cities and communities?
    This question has assumed growing importance, with Canada facing a more
than $60-billion municipal infrastructure deficit and the federal government
increasingly favouring P3s for infrastructure projects.
    A new report by Professor Pierre J. Hamel of Montreal's INRS-Urbanization
looks at specific examples of municipal P3s to determine how, and how well,
these projects work. The new report, Public-Private Partnerships and
Municipalities: Beyond Principles, a Brief Overview of Practices, presents his
findings.
    The report is available now on the FCM website at
http://www.fcm.ca/english/media/press/aug312007.html
