Are Urgent and Pressing Medicare Issues Facing Albertans in 2013?


February 7, 2013 :: Sandra Azocar
Moderated by Michael Cormican

Some may think medicare issues have gone away with the election of a more liberal Tory Premier. Are things going just fine with health care in Alberta? How is this Provincial Government under Allison Redford doing as stewards of Alberta Health Services?

Should we be concerned about the state of primary health care? Is creeping privatization of health care still an issue and are the recent cuts to home care the right way to go?

What are the pressing decisions and choices facing Albertans and particularly our elected Government in the coming months? Where do we need to be alert, vocal and informed, as we move forward? The speaker will explore and discuss these issues and choices
