The vast majority of Canadians don’t want the provinces to have exclusive control over health care. Instead they want the provinces to guarantee that federal health care funding is actually spent on health care. This according to a Pollara opinion poll commissioned by CUPE.

More than eight in ten (81%) want provinces to provide clear reporting as a condition of receiving more federal health care funding. Only a small minority (16%) believe the provinces should not have to meet any conditions in order to receive more federal funds for health care.

An overwhelming majority (92%) want federal funding specially earmarked for health care, as recommended in the recent report of the Royal Commission on the Future of Health Care led by Roy Romanow.
