Building better health care

Paul Dewar calls for the inclusion of medical facilities in a national infrastructure fund.

“Mr. Harper excluded health care investments from the Economic Action Plan and ended federal support for medical equipment,” said Dewar. “It’s time for the federal government to invest in renewing our hospitals, community clinics and medical equipment.”

That will presumably be up for discussion at what seems an increasingly busy debate schedule for NDP leadership contenders. After Mr. Dewar’s called for more than the six debates scheduled by the party, at least two other forums have been announced: one in Sudbury and another in Cambridge.
