CHC: Protect Your Right to Public Health Care

The following is from the Canadian Health Coalition:

A public service threatened by privatization.

Every single one of us is at risk of losing our right to quality public health care.

Our public health system is under threat of privatization — which is often touted by politicians as a solution to the current health care crisis, but will actually make it much worse.

Privatization puts an increased strain on frontline workers and struggling hospitals. It creates a system where the wealthy can afford to quickly skip the line, while everyone else is forced to wait — even longer than we currently are.

Simply put: private, for-profit medical clinics are focused on making money for their shareholders. Health care in Canada must prioritize patients’ needs over profiteering.
