Doug Ford rips Band-Aid off patchwork compliance with Canada Health Act - 2019-05-16
Ford plans to totally cancel provincial government health coverage outside of Canada. With high administrative costs for the program, a nearly $12-billion provincial deficit and a debt of over $345 billion, such action was well-intentioned and seemed logical.
However, it would violate section 11 of the Canada Health Act. Furthermore, when you consider the various unintended consequences of this policy, particularly when it comes to new Canadians, Ontario and other provinces should not just reinstate but increase this coverage.
