Paying for health care would be one more thing making this province unaffordable. For years, for-profit clinic owners like Brian Day have tried to bring expensive private care to B.C. Private for-profit clinics benefit a tiny number of people at the expense of the rest of us. Earlier this year, the BC Supreme Court ruled against Day seeing private care for what it is -- a profit-making grab.
Now we need a government who will commit to improving the public care we all rely on. October 24th is Election Day in British Columbia with advance polling starting on October 15.
We are asking candidates to take action on three key areas of health care - improving seniors care, increasing access to Community Health Centres, and committing to public solutions to reduce waitlist times.
But we need your help -- will you get candidates on the record to demand action in these areas? Please click on the buttons below to find more information about each topic including a list of questions you can ask candidates.
