NS Candidates – Health Care Champions

Health Care Champion Pledge

 

I, _____________________________,

candidate in the 62nd General Election in Nova Scotia,

believe in a robust public health care system, where patients are treated based on their need, not on their ability to pay.

 

 

I agree that:

  • Privatization does not create health care workers; it poaches health care workers to work in private for-profit institutions, draining resources and increasing wait times.
  • Privatization hurts poor communities as for-profit medicine is concerned with making profits and not the needs of small populations
  • Privatization hurts all Nova Scotians through increased costs, lower safety standards, and reduced access.

 

 

I pledge to:

  • Uphold the values of the Canada Health Act – Administration, Comprehensiveness, Universality, Portability, and Accessibility.
  • Proclaim Bill 144 – The Insured Health Services Act
  • Ensure that all Nova Scotians have access to a strong, vital and comprehensive public health care system.
