National Post 4 hrs · The Trudeau government showed no signs it was prepared to budge on its plan to clamp down on increases to health-transfer payments.----------Julie Ali They could cut out the major salaries to executive staff who do nothing productive that I can determine at Alberta Health Services or Covenant Health. Alberta Health could simply have one health authority and save on the bureaucratic costs of the second one but no, we have to have Covenant Health as well. It's ridiculous. The federal government should shut down all these provincial slush pits and put the money into mental health and the most vulnerable citizens in continuing care. Like · Reply · Just now-----

Kenneth Gallagher There are so many things provinces could do to reduce their costs. They could collaborate on a national pharmacare program. They could collaborate on a national health database and they could start treating health care as a Canadian service and not a provincial fiefdom. They could cut bureaucracy again through forming, together with the federal government, a national health care program. They could look at co-pay for non-life threatening services and use private clinics to deliver some of those services. So many different things could be done and they won't do it because it would cost them their sovereignty which they don't actually have
