Saskatchewan is among a number of regions in Canada, such as Manitoba and even our nation's capital, currently experiencing alarming spikes in the spread of HIV. B.C. has an impressive track record for slowing the spread of HIV/AIDs in the province. The B.C. Centre created a Treatment as Prevention strategy which provides widespread access to HIV testing, care, support and treatment.

Along with failing to increase affordability and access, private MRIs pose a more insidious threat to publicly-funded health care. The more Canadians believe that they have to pay out of their own pocket for necessary care, the more we will see confidence in and commitment to medicare eroded.

There has been much hand-wringing over the claimed disappearance of the middle class. At the national level important policy such as a stable currency and domestic peace matter to the creation of prosperity and the formation of the middle class.
