Dear Prime Minister Harper,
Canadians are looking for leadership from you and your government and expect you to come to the table to negotiate a new health accord with the provinces and territories. I want to see the federal government pay its fair share of health costs while leading a national discussion on how to improve the health and health care of all Canadians. I urge you to sit down with the Premiers as soon as possible to advance this objective.

Calls to allow private insurance and for-profit delivery of health care will get louder as governments look to reduce deficits. All evidence shows, when for-profit companies are involved, patients pay more and get less.

First Nations children are often denied services available to all other children because of payment and jurisdictional disputes within and between the federal and provincial/territorial governments. Jordan’s Principle is a child first principle named in memory of Jordan River Anderson and calls on the government of first contact to pay for services for the child and then seek reimbursement later so the child does not get tragically caught in the middle of government red tape.
