In spite of and in the face of the Romanow report, several provinces are pushing ahead with privatized health care. And the federal government is trying to distance itself from any firm commitment to public health. Ontario is continuing with planned for-profit MRI and CT clinics and P3 hospitals. Alberta is also thumbing its nose at Romanow and the federal government. New Brunswick’s premier still wants to make room for the private sector in health care. The premier of Newfoundland and Labrador is pushing P3s for three new long-term care facilities. And the BC premier gave the Abbotsford P3 hospital the green light, just weeks before the Romanow report’s release.
