Conservatives' healthcare privatization plans
Alberta’s New Democrats reveal documents detailing the PCs' health care privatization plans. These documents are proof that the Tories have a blueprint to undermine our public health care system. They describe such plans as new health premiums, spending accounts, and government-facilitated queue jumping.
Why does keeping healthcare "public" matter?
"Publicly funded, publicly delivered healthcare produces the best outcomes, at the lowest cost, of any system. It also ensures fairness and equity in access to health services, something that's critically important to Albertans. Properly funded and run, it is still the best health care system in the world. Join me in standing up for public health care, part of our heritage as Albertans and Canadians."
from A Letter from Brian Mason to All Albertans
Nothing distinguishes us more as Albertans, and Canadians, than our commitment to a universal, accessible public health system.
But our public healthcare system is in crisis. Years of free-market experiments and underfunding by the Conservatives have left our public health care system in urgent need of strengthening.
Yet, in the midst of a healthcare crisis affecting the lives of many Albertans, the Conservatives offer nothing but more of the same: more moves towards American-style healthcare and higher costs for seniors’ long-term care.
And the Wildrose? They have the same plans to allow wealthy people to pay for faster service, subsidized by public dollars.
The main difference between the Wildrose and the Conservatives is that the Conservatives have been doing by stealth what the Wildrose is openly pushing for.
Alberta’s NDP is committed to a new way of providing healthcare within the publicly funded and publicly delivered health care system.
We will reduce emergency room wait times and free up acute care hospital beds. We will introduce a basic dental health plan for children under 18. We will give seniors a break on prescription drugs, stop cost increases for long-term care, and provide more home care.
Alberta’s public health care is the Alberta New Democrats’ top priority. We know Alberta has the prosperity to provide excellent public services.
This election, it’s clear that we need more NDP MLAs elected to help protect public health care.
