[Nettime-bold] Privatisation of Government Services

From:  Tom Gray@MITEL on 12/21/2000 08:54 AM
For those concerned with the ongoing privatisation of government services and
its effect on the democratic control of such services, the following link is to
a story on the current controversy in Canada on the water supply of the village
of Walkerton in the province of Ontario. The water supply was infected with
E-Coli which resulted in the deaths of seven people and the hospitalisation of
thousands of others for serious illnesses with no effective treatments. This
story casts a new light on this controversy. It certainly reflects on the merits
of localisation.
