In a Vector Poll commissioned by CUPE, Canadians say they want to expand public health care rather than rely more on the private sector and user fees by a margin of three to one.

Across the country, 67 per cent of Canadians say the vision of health care that’s closest to theirs is “to expand public health care to include home care and prescription drugs,” while only 22 per cent favour “increased reliance on individuals to fund health care and on the private sector.”

By a margin of two to one, they also believe we should not embark on major reforms before Romanow has had a chance to report.

The poll surveyed 1,014 adults in early February and is accurate within 3 per cent, 19 times out of 20.
