As a registered nurse working many overtime shifts in an Alberta hospital, I was relieved to learn of the Liberal-NDP confidence-and-supply agreement because it has the potential to deliver improvements in public health care for patients, families, and frontline workers like me. If acted upon as planned, public health care will be advanced significantly for everyone in Canada through a universal national pharmacare program, dental care, more doctors, and nurses, improved long-term care, and conditional funding increases for provinces. Public health care is in crisis, and new investments into programs and continuing progress towards universal national pharmacare are needed urgently. Filled prescriptions mean empty emergency rooms, and a universal single-payer pharmacare program not only saves money, but more importantly, saves lives. There is broad public and political support for a universal, single-payer pharmacare program as described in the 2019 Final Report of the Advisory Council on the Implementation of National Pharmacare, which was commissioned by the governing Liberals and led by Dr. Eric Hoskins, the former health minister of Ontario. In addition, the devastating impact of the pandemic in long-term care homes, especially in for-profit, privately owned facilities, demonstrates the need to repair the damage caused by chronic underfunding and a national Safe Long-Term Care Act with enforceable standards. The Canadian Health Coalition has urged the federal government to increase its share of health-care spending with provinces and territories through programs for pharmacare and long-term care with strict reporting mechanisms to ensure accountability in public health care. My colleagues and I, who have seen the impact of this awful pandemic first-hand, are ready to work with MPs to ensure the next three years transform our health-care system. Pauline Worsfold, RN Chairperson of the Canadian Health Coalition Edmonton, Alta.
