WATCH: Dwight Duncan urges province to look at public-private partnerships
The former finance minister says the goal is to save money
0 0

The province's former finance minister says he knows a way the government can save money - partner up with the private sector.

Dwight Duncan says Ontario needs to look at ways to be more efficient if it wants to get into the black.

The province has a $11.3 billion dollar deficit and a $272 debt.

He says the idea is to save money while delivering the same services and apply it elsewhere.

Duncan offers he knows sometimes it doesn't work, pointing to public-private partnerships with Ornge and Highway 407. But he says that doesn't mean the province shouldn't go forward with other opportunities.

Duncan reveals he wishes he had more of an opportunity to contract services out when he was in office but couldn't always persuade the rest of the party to get on board.
