Cape Breton, NS-based physician Monika Dutt is passionate about a Canadian value, access for all Canadians to universal health care. The Federal government has abrogated its responsibilities - gradual cuts to transfer payments, not enforcing the principles of the Health Act, then in 2014 letting the Health Accord lapse. The Harper government appears to be moving Canada backwards, closer to a US model. Two-tier or single payer? Dr. Dutt comments on the close connection between public health and poverty.
