blackbird Posted February 6 Report Share Posted February 6 Tomorrow the PM and Premiers, after many months of bickering, will finally sit down to try to come to an agreement on federal health care money for the provinces. But the health care system has been failing Canadians for years and is in dire condition with over a million people on waiting lists, millions without a family doctor, and approximately ten thousand a year dying on the waiting lists. Is this what it took for these politicians to get together? I'm afraid I don't hold out much hope for this system or our politicians to rectify the problem. It is very serious and they do not seem to have the urgency to be able to fix it. Trudeau said there will be no agreement reached on Feb. 7th, when they meet tomorrow. What kind of an attitude is that to go into such an important meeting? No wonder two thirds of Canadians believe the system is broken. Canadians feel trapped in a broken system with no way to fix it. "The latest government data indicates that 3.2 million Canadians are waiting for surgery, a diagnostic scan, or specialist treatment, according to think tank SecondStreet.org. The latest data also suggests that 41,487 patients have died while on a waiting list since 2018–2019." Over 3.2 Million Canadians on Health-Care Waitlists: Government Data (theepochtimes.com Adding to the confusion are the NDP's Singh's comments: "Shawn Whatley: Jagmeet Singh uses confusion about private care to support the status quo" Shawn Whatley: Jagmeet Singh uses confusion about private care to support the status quo (msn.com) Yet he continues to prop up the government helping to keep Canadians in this disastrous situation of a failing health care system. His solution would seem to be to greatly increase taxes and spend billions more on more nurses and staff in the public system, which may be failing us because of serious flaws. He believe tax money alone will fix the system. He offers no solutions to the need for innovation and efficiency in the system. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
