Health Care???


After listening to Cross Canada Check Up on Sunday 14th August 2022, I have a worrying concern. Yes, our health care system is in trouble but is the Federal and Provincial governments actually attempting to resolve the crisis? I’m not totally sure they are, they pay lip service but don’t really appear to do what needs to be done. Could it be possible they are trying to steer the nation toward private health care? That would save them lots of money, not to mention much less problems from citizens. We are already moving to private care purely out of necessity. People waiting for treatments that are a year or more away are being forced to pay for treatment at private clinics. My own wife needs cataract surgery but there is no date in the near future, she can’t even get an approximate date. In the meantime it’s either go blind or pay for private surgery. Obviously we have to go private, I can’t drive and if she doesn’t get her sight fixed soon nor will she. Here on PEI we have a Minister of Health who mostly avoids the media, hides from the public and is otherwise never available to answer questions. So yes to me it does appear we are being steered toward private health care. Maybe it is time the citizen of Canada gave the Governments a clear message. Either fix the health care system or we will end your political careers and find those who will. Elections are never far away, politicians should remember that.
God Bless and keep reading.
