Try, Try, Try Again!

Saad Rafi was recently appointed the new Ontario Deputy Minister of Health and Long Term Care.

A long time senior civil servant, Saad Rafi was also the National Leader for Infrastructure at the giant consulting firm Deloitte Canada. As such, Rafi was a key proponent of Public Private Partnerships in Canada, one of the main ways corporations are trying to get their mitts on public sector dollars.

While close ties between the corporate and government worlds is nothing new, critics might find this appointment a little odd: the previous Deputy bounced out of the Ministry after a scandal at E-Health that revolved largely around contracting out and privatization. -- Doug
