Is Hallway Medicine Part of Our Canadian Identity?


One of Saskatchewan’s former premiers, Roy Romanow, recently spoke out about the federal government’s plans regarding future health care funding for Canadian provinces. With limits being set on the federal dollars available for health care, provinces will be forced to explore and expand alternatives to government delivery of medical services.

Romanow’s staunch defence of a universal, government-run health care system includes the die-hard notions that Medicare is a social good, a necessity for national unity and a part of our Canadian identity.

Perhaps he should ask the patients receiving hallway medicine in his home province of Saskatchewan if they agree that it’s just part of their Canadian identity.

Do you think hallway medicine is part of our Canadian identity?
