Is PROFIT® the cure?

No, profit is definitely not the cure to Canada’s health care ills.

We’ve learned the harsh lessons of privatization from our neighbours. The U.S. spends nearly twice as much per person on health care as we do and has over 40 million people who have no health care whatsoever. For-profit health care provides less coverage to fewer people. It costs more, and it means lower life expectancies and higher infant mortality rates. It removes money from the system and gives it to corporate shareholders. And despite the loud claims of politicians and health care lobbyists, for-profit health care will do nothing to shorten wait times.
