The quality and fairness of contracts and agreements awarded to private firms will be improved by ensuring that the key terms of the contract be made available to the Canadian public. A law preventing contracts from being sealed from public scrutiny will help ensure that fiascos such as the Highway 407 ETR contract being awarded to a Spanish consortium for 99 years under terms that I can't see, or the agreement that allowed US Steel to buy Stelco that they are now in the process of walking away from leaving pensioners high and dry. As a citizen of Canada, I also signed that contract! Why can't I see the terms?
