Dear Health Minister Philpott
We need leadership in medicare restored and some fundamental changes in what is covered.
First, and most importantly, Health Minister Jane Philpott should accept and endorse a shared responsibility for health care in the federation. The Harper decade was a dark one for health-care leadership. His mantra was that all healthcare decision-making was a matter for the provinces although our Constitution clearly provides it is a matter of shared jurisdiction, writes Colleen Flood.The Hill Times photograph by Jake Wright
