Federal Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor started the ball rolling last week by officially issuing what, under the Canada Health Act, is called a "notice of concern" to Christine Elliott, her provincial counterpart in Ford's Progressive Conservative government.

It took a while. But Canada's Liberal government has finally challenged Premier Doug Ford's patently illegal plan to cancel emergency medicare coverage for Ontarians travelling abroad.

One criterion is portability — the requirement that provincial medicare plans cover residents who are temporarily travelling elsewhere in Canada or abroad.
