    Dear Premier Dalton McGuinty,

    We are writing to express our strong opposition to your government’s policy of hospital financing through “P3s” or public-private partnerships.  “Alternative Finance Mechanism” or “Alternative Financing and Procurement” (AFM/AFP) hospitals are P3s under a new name.  In these hospitals, a group of financiers, construction companies, designers, and service providers build a hospital project and sell it back to the non-profit hospital board under a contract that stretches for 20 – 40 years.
