Christy Clark isn't standing up for health care

Is Christy Clark doing enough to defend our public healthcare system?

Since Clark became Premier, wait times for key procedures like hip replacements and cataract surgery have increased significantly. Doctors are blowing the whistle on hospitals that are "dangerously overcrowded". And many families can't find a family doctor, and are forced to face long wait times at walk-in clinic, even for a basic doctor visit. [1-2]

Now, a candidate for Clark's BC Liberal Party is saying she thinks the solution is to allow doctors to sell medical services privately to rich patients -- at prices most of us could never afford. That could create a crisis for our public healthcare system. [3]
