Medicare Pledge

As a Canadian, I believe access to quality health care must be based on need, not ability to pay.

Our public health care reflects those values of equality and fairness.

We must improve our public health care for everyone, instead of expanding private for-profit services that benefit only a few.

I pledge my support for the protection and improvement of public health care in Canada.
