CUPE members have the backing of the vast majority of Canadians when they call for accountable health spending that only goes to public care. A recent poll conducted for CUPE shows 81 per cent of Canadians believe the provinces must guarantee federal health dollars are spent on health care and provide clear reporting as a condition of receiving more federal health care funding. More than three quarters of Canadians want the Prime Minister and Premiers to ensure earmarked health dollars go exclusively to public, not-for-profit health care. The message is clear: not a penny of our health care dollars to profit.

Over the past six weeks, CUPE has been pressing provincial and federal politicians to take action for public health care. As health ministers and first ministers meet, CUPE is on the front line highlighting public solutions that will expand and modernize health care for generations to come.
