If the world is on the cusp of another deadly coronavirus outbreak, this might seem like a peculiar time to be signing up for a high-risk experiment in health-care management based on ideology instead of facts.

But as far as Canada's increasingly extremist conservative movement is concerned, of course the time is right! It always is.

This goes double here in Alberta, where the United Conservative Party government seems determined to plunge the province's public health-care system into chaos in order to create the right conditions to sell privatization as a solution for a system in crisis.
