NEWS ~ Conservatives undermining public health care

“The new funding formula that the Conservatives unilaterally adopted two years ago is threatening one of the most prized public services for Canadians,� said Health critic Libby Davies (Vancouver – East).

Instead of negotiating a new Health Accord, Conservatives are downloading heath care costs onto the provinces and turning their backs on a system that Canadians have relied on for generations. As a result, we will see increased disparities across the country—longer wait times, reduced-front-line services, and lack of access to home and long term care.

“This is simply unacceptable. The government has a responsibility to ensure quality health care for all of its citizens,� added Deputy critic Dany Morin (Chicoutimi – Le Fjord).
