How to Save PPP in Quebec

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - April 2, 2009) - Amelia Salehabadi, Esq., a canadian lawyer with international expertise on PPP's, just wrote an open letter to the Minister of Finance and infrastructures of Quebec, on urgently needed adjustments to restore some credibility of the PPP projects in the province. She wrote, inter alia:

'The basic elements of a PPP are and remain in first place, the full transparency of all project phases to ensure impartiality and, secondly, the financial, technical and calendar risks transferred, in large parts, to the private sector.

Currently, Quebec is out of competition on these key points. There is an urgent need to rethink either the PPP in depth, or to waive for the moment any recourses to them (...)

Indeed, except for law firms and financial experts, survey and public relations firms for whom they are an excellent source of revenue, PPPs in Quebec are more a source of concern for their own viability than anything else'
