Stop the further privatization of lab services in Edmonton and the surrounding area; hold public consultations on the proposed privatization before further decisions are made
This petition had 306 supporters
The previous government failed to provide Albertans with a business plan that would fully disclose all the economic justifications and arguments Alberta Health Services has used to support the privatization of hospital labs. Equally, the previous government had been neglecting our current public labs for years; they had been left without upgrades, and were understaffed and under-resourced to the point that privatization was presented as the only option.
Albertans deserve answers.
We have a right to know how it is that giving $3 billion of our healthcare budget to a private, for-profit corporation will benefit Albertans and our health care system, if at all.
Together, we can make a difference.
We can send a clear message to this government that Albertans expect them stand by their promise to stop the privatization of our healthcare system.
