Sick of the harmful things that business can do for profit.”

“A dozen or so years ago I was discussing user fees with my senior mom. She remarked that she and her elderly friends, those that could afford it, would be glad to pay user fees to keep the health system healthy.

I wrote about this to the minister of Health Alan Rock and received a detailed response. The gist of this was; "Requiring patients to pay any amount out-of-pocket based on use of services would pose problems for the universality and accessibility of the Canada Health Act."

When there is something broken or about to break you fix it don't you? Fix the Canada Health Act so it keeps working for the tough times ahead.”
