(Health Minister) Ujjal Dosanjh will meet today with NDP health critic Jean Crowder. He is expected to say he is amenable to tightening regulations that restrict for-profit health care.
Mr. Dosanjh intends to make it clear the provinces will not be permitted to turn over federal cash transfers to doctors who deliver the same services in both the insured public system and in the private sector for higher fees, a senior adviser to the Department of Health said yesterday.
Just a few days ago, the Liberals sent Jack Layton away empty-handed. Now they're bending over backwards to accomodate him. And it only costs the lives and health of ordinary Canadian people.
