New videos produced by CUPE on the myths surrounding the privatization of health care are now available. Whether you are a health care worker, a union activist or a concerned citizen, the videos help to answer important questions about the future of our public health care system.

The first video presents a panel of experts who take turns debunking the myths that the public system is too expensive and that privatization would cut both costs and waiting lists. This is the full-length version of the video; smaller excerpts focusing on specific issues will be available soon for easy sharing.

The second video features highlights from a speech by former UK health secretary Frank Dobson at CUPE’s National Health Care Sector Meeting held in Victoria in the Fall of 2010. Dobson uses his own personal experience to debunk the myths surrounding privatization. It’s a must see!

It’s important to share these videos widely, especially given that those who would profit from privatization continue to undermine our public health care system. 

You can use the “tell a friend” button above each video to pass them on by email or on your favourite social media network.
