e-4273 (Health)

Initiated by Shane Schuck from Vancouver, British Columbia

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • We request to sustainably strengthen our single payer health system for future generations through nationalizing, commissions, reviews and reducing unnecessary duplicate regional expenses;
  • Nationally designed health systems offer citizens more services at the same overall cost per-person versus regionally designed health systems;
  • Past reviews and reports on healthcare have not had a requirement for action and, therefore, improvement; and
  • Shifting jurisdiction to a national system that values regular reviews independent of corporate lobbyists and instead centres the needs of system experts, health professionals, chronic patients and care partners will improve patient safety as well as workplace safety.
We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to
1. Re-write the Canada Health Act to nationalize healthcare insurance, health colleges, health system administration and health system governance;
2. Set up a national health records system;
3. Set up a national no fault harm in care compensation system;
4. Hold a ‘National Commission on Healthcare’ every 10 years with requirements for action on key recommendations;
5. Hold an ‘Action and Accountability’ review within 5 years of each report generated by the Commission; and
6. Set up a National independent body for case management of patient safety concerns and complaints for all health related Colleges and Health Authorities to be used by patients, care partners and healthcare professionals that provides 'whistle-blower' protections.
