Medicare Protection Pledge sign now

CANADIANS CALL ON THEIR POLITICIANS: TAKE THE PLEDGE

Canadians view medicare as a moral enterprise, not a business venture
Roy Romanow


We, the undersigned residents of Canada, are troubled by those who say that more for-profit health care delivery will solve our health care problems.

The health system belongs to the people of Canada. We own it. We pay for it. Its not the governments to give away. We are committed to do all we can to protect its values and principles from betrayal.

The evidence demonstrates that not-for-profit health care delivery is safer, cheaper, respects Canadian values, and is more accountable than private for-profit and investor-owned health care delivery. It can be a matter of life and death.

To ensure health care is a human right, not a luxury commodity for those who can pay, we sign the MEDICARE PROTECTION PLEDGE, and commit to uphold it through our taxes.

We CALL ON YOU, PUBLIC OFFICE HOLDERS AND POLITICAL CANDIDATES, TO SIGN THE PLEDGE. Canadians insist their tax dollars go for care not for profits. We need to know where our prime minister, premiers, ministers, members of legislative bodies, as well as candidates for such positions stand and we will hold you to account.


MEDICARE PROTECTION PLEDGE

I believe in publicly funded, not-for profit delivery of health services in Canada. Investor owned, private for-profit health care threatens patient safety, universality, sustainability, and undermines Canadian values.

Therefore, I pledge to do all I can to: a) immediately stop any further privatization; and b) to protect and expand publicly funded and non-profit health service delivery in Canada.

LES CANADIENNES ET LES CANADIENS DEMANDENT А LEURS ЙLUES ET ЙLUS DE SENGAGER

Les Canadiens considиrent le rйgime dassurance-santй comme une entreprise non pas commerciale, mais morale.
Roy Romanow


Nous soussignйs, rйsidentes et rйsidents du Canada, sommes troublйs par les affirmations de celles et ceux qui soutiennent que laccroissement de la prestation а but lucratif des soins de santй rйsoudra nos problиmes.

Le systиme de santй appartient aux Canadiennes et aux Canadiens. Nous lavons payй. Les gouvernements nont pas le droit de le donner а dautres. Nous sommes dйcidйs а faire tout ce que nous pourrons pour йviter que ses valeurs et ses principes ne soient trahis.

Les faits dйmontrent que la prestation sans but lucratif des soins de santй est plus sыre et moins coыteuse, en plus dкtre conforme aux valeurs canadiennes. En outre, lobligation de rendre compte est mieux respectйe quavec une prestation privйe et а but lucratif, appartenant а des investisseurs. Ce pourrait кtre une question de vie ou de mort.

Pour garantir que la santй soit un droit et non un produit de luxe rйservй а celles et ceux qui ont de largent, nous signons LENGAGEMENT А PROTЙGER LASSURANCE-MALADIE et nous nous engageons а le respecter grвce а nos impфts.

NOUS VOUS DEMANDONS, TITULAIRES DE CHARGES PUBLIQUES ET CANDIDATES ET CANDIDATS AUX ЙLECTIONS, DE SIGNER LENGAGEMENT. La population canadienne tient а ce que ses impфts servent а la santй, pas aux profits. Comme premier ministre du Canada, premiers ministres des provinces, ministres, dйputйes et dйputйs et candidates et candidats, vous devez nous dire oщ vous vous situez dans ce dйbat et nous vous rappellerons vos promesses.


ENGAGEMENT А PROTЙGER LASSURANCE-MALADIE

Jappuie la prestation financйe publiquement et sans but lucratif des services de santй au Canada. Les soins de santй privйs et а but lucratif appartenant а des investisseurs mettent en pйril la sйcuritй des patients, luniversalitй des soins et la viabilitй du systиme, en plus dкtre contraires aux valeurs canadiennes.

En consйquence, je mengage а faire tout ce que je pourrai pour : a) mettre fin immйdiatement а toute privatisation ; et b) protйger et йlargir la prestation financйe publiquement et sans but lucratif des services de santй au Canada.


Sincиrement,

Soussignйs
