Health Care.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

As most of our readers know there is a Federal Election taking place in Canada at this time and sometimes you just have to get involved with politics or you will get buried by it. This morning Kathy and I were up early so we could attend a political meeting. We fortunately were there early enough to find first a parking spot then a seat. The start of the meeting had to be delayed as the traffic trying to get into the parking lot was backed up the road a half mile. The delay allowed for those people to hear the entire meeting from start to finish. The subject for the meeting is something we Canadians are proud to have but must now fight for because under our current government Steven Harper and the Conservatives it is being torn apart. For this post I’ll simply use the words of reporter Derek Spalding of the Windsor Star.

Health care has so far been a silent issue in the federal election campaign, but one of Canada’s most powerful unions cranked up the volume Wednesday at Windsor’s Ciociaro Club.

The event may have been billed as a non-partisan rally, but the messages from Unifor executives and health experts repeatedly slammed Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his Conservative party for its policies on the country’s health care system.

Yes that room held 3,500 people.
More than 3,500 seniors and union loyalists crammed into the Ciociaro Club listening to speeches from national Unifor president Jerry Dias, Dr. Ryan Meili of Canadian Doctors of Medicare and Natalie Mehra of the Ontario Health Coalition.

“Windsor is sending a message,” Mehra told a packed house. “It will change the outcome of this election.”

Dias agreed that many of the speeches crossed well over the line of partisanship, but he does not apologize for any of the criticisms thrown at Harper and his Conservative government.

“It’s a non-partisan event, but it’s hard to talk about health care without talking politics,” he said. “It’s all about choices. The type of health care we have in this country will be a choice of government and we’ve seen what’s happened for the last nine or 10 years under this government.”

This is definitely something we will fight to hold on to. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
