To reassure the voters of Regina Douglas Park and the rest of the province about the Green Party’s stance on health issues, Lau stresses that the Greens are 100 percent pro-Medicare and pro-publicly funded and administered health care. “We will fight for as long and as hard as necessary to defend Medicare from privatization,” says Lau.
Key health care planks in the Green party’s election platform include:
- Placing all doctors on salary,
- The elimination of ambulance fees,
- More emphasis on preventative health care, and
- The adoption of a guaranteed annual income.
