Kelly McParland aptly points out all the fear mongering.
Even though our health care system is expensive and needs reform, PM Harper is not going to gut it. Besides delivery of health care is provincial jurisdiction. At least the new Sun News has started a discussion on the issue. Let's hope our politicians take note and take measures to change things. The way it is right now is actually unsustainable.The Liberals release a campaign ad accusing Stephen Harper of trying to seize “absolute power.”Michael Ignatieff campaigns with former prime minister Paul Martin, who sends out a fundraising letter claiming the Tories will destroy health care. “The future of health care hangs in the balance … there are just 14 short days remaining to save our cherished universal health care system,” he says.
Liberals warn that Mr. Harper is “open to American style private for-profit health care.” Vote for the Conservatives and he’ll gut the system and make everyone pay for their check-ups.
So what’s that tell you? Well, it tells the Toronto Star that the Tories are using “cynical scare tactics” in their campaign.
Right now though, I'd be more concerned about a coalition in which the Bloc is holding the real power.
