The health care system is crumbling in Ontario. A two tier system is probably inevitable and will benefit both the people who pay and the people who do not.

Jan G we have those problems now. Using private companies to do imaging and lab tests in Alberta sped things up greatly and made it more accessible. And we have had private clinics in the east for many years now. And as it sits people are dying while rich people go elsewhere.

Jan G, all other countries that have privatized health care with public health care are better systems with much shorter wait times and less cost per capita than Canada. Your concerns are unwarranted. I suggest you actually look at health care systems in other countries.

You have no evidence that “private general health will marginalize those who are poor.” That is fear mongering.

My first impression of any form of privatization is that doctors and hospitals will provide even less than what they are providing now at the same cost to taxpayers.
Just like supplemental health coverage for physiotherapy, chiropractors and other ‘alternative’ methods of health care, private general health will marginalize those who are poor, becoming poor and those who are wealthy.
It is, unfortunately, a necessity though because our system is broken, outdated and like palliative care, is becoming dependent on volunteers providing much of the grunt work that medical staff use to provide.
General practitioners are out of date in their knowledge and they are threatened; specialists are wanting the same degree of autonomy as lawyers. This, as I see it, would be the reason why a challenge such as this would be a major threat.

It’s high time someone challenged this oligopoly.

Denying people health options is fascist. This case should be a lock – unless there is a Malthusian globalist appointee on the bench.

There does not seem to be a lot of news about this story – if there is I am obviously missing it.
