In response to the February 15 Commission on the Reform of Ontario's Public Services report - widely referred to as the Drummond report after its author, retired banker Don Drummond - the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives hosted a public meeting, entitled Deconstructing Drummond, in Toronto to examine the 362 recommendations within the report.

The event drew a packed house, with an audience representing the full spectrum of civil society - all concerned about the harmful effects an austerity agenda could have on the economy and on the people of Ontario.

CCPA Research Associates - economists Hugh Mackenzie and Jim Stanford - presented their analysis of the report's fiscal and economic projections.

Analyses from additional CCPA Research Associates are also provided.
