Liquid Assets: Privatizing and Regulating Canada’s Water Utilities

By Elizabeth Brubaker

This book argues that public provision of water and wastewater services has not served Canadians well. Based on successes in other jurisdictions, it calls for the privatization of utilities and examines the conditions — such as competition, effective regulation, legal liability, and union support — necessary to make privatization work.

Published in 2002 by the University of Toronto’s Centre for Public Management.
