Dude, so many people can’t afford the dentist or vision care. If healthcare went that way it would be bad. You should flip your argument to make dental and vision publicly funded. Just read the research on cost of a two tier HC. Biggest problem with you guys deciding this is 1/
2/ that none of you know what you are talking about. Without consulting the experts (us and academics like @Lorian_H) your “informed discussion” is far from informed because you “don’t know what you don’t know” - an unknown unknown. Aka you act like you have all the info but 2/
you simply don’t, and that’s a fact, not an insult. It’s a well documented entity. See the picture, and lots of research to back it up. In medicine, working in the bottom right quadrant gets people killed, and our training and the use of our colleagues that are in the know 3/
3/ are crucial in proper delivery of care. So no, you UCP party people cannot have a truly informed discussion without proper consultation, and that consultation, as you know, if profoundly against privatization as you are wishing it. Because we know what facts you are missing 3/
4/ and the problem is you and the ideology party don’t even know what other info you are missing, and worse yet, you don’t know you are missing it. Again, that’s a fact.

Other theory: you don’t give a shit about people and just see $$$ in your pockets.

This article is full of lies and half truths. Also it isn’t about money, it’s about respect and Albertans that will be harmed by this governments poor choices and selling your care to corporations. Doctors are willing to take a cut. We even agreed to the exact deal that the 1/
2/ UCP asked for, and they rejected it. That shows you they never wanted to negotiate in good faith. In fact, we have proof this was the case from the beginning. The increase in physician spending in the context that per visit costs have not gone up in years literally means 2/
3/ that more Albertans sought care and that we served more Albertans. The fact that the government wants to hold spending at this level indicates they don’t want us helping more people than last year, in a province that is growing in age and number of people. 3/

“The entire @UCPCaucus @Alberta_UCP are against women, children and healthcare workers. Also they do not care about seniors.“

That sounds like a “leftist” looney remark. But guess what? It is 100% true. As a physician, it appalls me how openly they 1/
2/ dismiss any criticism. The have defunded PUBLIC education, PUBLIC healthcare, acted way too slowly to support struggling seniors, defunded insurance for seniors dependants, and delisted many needed medications for the seniors themselves. It is well known my stance and the 2/
3/ facts regarding how they have bullied, devalued and hacked away at our HCWs. They praise how well AB has done during the pandemic, due to its robust system, and literally destroy the exact parts of it that make our response to COVID so good. The UCP and their 3/
