Increased cuts push Canadian health care toward privatization

We live in a society that’s riddled with elitism and special privilege. One of the few holdouts is medicare, Canada’s public health-care system, where a billionaire can’t bypass a fast-food worker waiting for medical care. Access is determined by medical need, not wallet size.

What’s ultimately at stake is whether there will be sufficient public funding to prevent provinces from turning over more of our health-care system to the private sector.
