Say "No" to Private Health Care in Nova Scotia!

Nova Scotia Federation of Labour started this petition to Premier Stephen McNeil and the Liberal Government

Premier Stephen McNeil wants to privatize health care in Nova Scotia. This will cost us more and we will get less. We cannot afford this. Add your voice to tell the Nova Scotia Liberals “Public Health, not private wealth!”

 

We are not pleased with the news that the Nova Scotia Health Care Authority has approached privately-owned Scotia Surgery to see if they can possibly carry our more operations in the coming months during the seven year replacement of aging components at the VG Hospital.

We can’t believe that after the recent million dollar decision of the McNeil Government not to privatize the motor vehicles, land and joint stock registries, that it would even consider allowing the private sector anywhere near our health care system.

There is overwhelming evidence that there is no risk for the private partner who sucks every dollar they can from taxpayers for health care services that operate as public‐private‐partnerships (P3s) which are really private for‐profit “care”. This is, and will be, an erosion of our universal health care system where profit becomes the focus of the service instead of health care.
