Alberta Health Inquiry: Queue-Jumping Website Launched To Hear From Public

CALGARY - An inquiry into allegations that some Albertans have been getting preferential treatment in the health-care system has launched a website.

John Vertes, the commissioner of the inquiry, says he hopes going online will encourage more people to take part in the probe.

The inquiry is to determine if some people are or have been jumping the line for health care and to come up with recommendations to stop the practice if it is happening.

Vertes says the actual consultation phase of the inquiry doesn't start until December when public hearings will be held in Edmonton and Calgary.

The Alberta government has set aside $10 million for the review.
