CUPE Local 416 Sings: “It isn’t Us!”

The practical impacts of privatization may not always be obvious.

After Toronto started contracting out snow removal and salting services to private companies in the late 1990s, snow clearing contracts with the City of Toronto were taken away from members of CUPE Local 416. As complaints from citizens about snow removal top new highs, CUPE Local 416 makes it clear through a parody of Shaggy’s “It Wasn’t Me” that clearing snow is a private matter.  

This demonstrates how privatization is bad for Torontonians and why we must Keep Transit Public!
