From the Press Release: The Government of Ontario is taking the unprecedented step of holding no public pre-budget hearings, the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Ontario has learned. "This is a real slap in the face of democracy," says CUPE Ontario President Fred Hahn. "The Liberals are proposing a radical restructuring of our public service including massive service cuts, new user fees, widespread contracting out and privatization of important public services, and they don't want to hear from the public and experts? That's not just foolish, it's wrong."
