Some good ideas for fixing medicare


Antonia Maioni, director of the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada, writes in an op-ed in the Gazette: "The report of Claude Castonguay's working group on health-care financing was released last week to a great hue and cry across Quebec. In the rush to sink the report like a stone, we might be overlooking the fact that a good portion of it actually addresses the organizational aspects of the health-care system. Regardless of where they stand on the issue of health-care privatization, most Quebecers would agree that organizational reform is very much needed."
