Jason Kenney is Chasing Doctors Out of Alberta With Legislation That Sabotages Public Healthcare - 2020-07-16
Is Jason Kenney's government deliberately sabotaging public healthcare?
It's starting to look that way after Kenney's United Conservatives introduced its controversial Bill 30 this week, legislation that paves the way for healthcare to be increasingly delivered by private providers in the province.
Among the changes, Bill 30 allows the government to sign contracts directly with doctors and allows private companies to administer doctor's clinics.
Doctors aren't happy — the new changes come on the heels of Kenney's government tearing up the province's master agreement, remove the right to arbitration and override funding schemes.
