It seems our Conservative government will not negotiate with the provinces in regards to health care. The current government has become more guarded regarding any policy to the point where they will no longer debate any issue openly.
The Conservatives ran on accountability back in the day and are now failing to live up that promise. Canadians do not want a two-tier health-care plan, and we do not want private for profit health care as well; no matter the cost as the Americans have.
Canadians need to stand up for health care both to the province and the federal government, and say we want our national health care because if we do nothing, Prime Minister Stephen Harper seems keen on removing federal responsibility of health-care funding entirely, and placing on the backs of the provinces.
The main purpose of the government in health care is too ensure equality among all the provinces; that way you get the same quality of health care in each province.
It would not surprise me if our government sabotages our health care to create an environment friendly to private health care.
Under Harper’s proposed transfer payment tied to GDP, Alberta is set to win.
However, nice it is to be Albertan, I am a Canadians first, and every Canadian must have the same ability to access the same quality of care as we can; this is the price of being Canadian.
