Your health is in the spotlight today! Ten former health ministers have put their names on a letter panning the Ford government’s cuts to public health and are asking the government to reconsider. This comes as Canada’s doctors are sounding the alarm over the health system as a whole and its ability to serve Boomers, Zoomers, and seniors. A significant portion believe they’ll need to delay retirement to afford the health care services they need. Baby boomers believe that a failure to improve the health system will result in them having to pay more out-of-pocket for health care and more taxes. In 2018, Canadian caregivers and care receivers had to spend more than $9B out-of-pocket to care for their loved ones, a number that’s expected to continue to rise. Yesterday the Canadian Medical Association presented these findings to a meeting of federal and provincial health ministers. Numbers. Libby speaks to Dr. Gigi Osler, President of the Canadian medical Association.
