It takes a robust economy to support our superior health care system. As the Justice Centre points out, when we choose to save lives but destroy the economy rather than balancing economic and health care factors we risk the loss of both.

We do want to expand our health care coverage to include prescription drugs, dental and eye care coverage. We are more likely to see contractions in coverage as we struggle to restart our economies.

Quarantine is an exclusive federal jurisdiction and provinces cannot lawfully impose quarantine on a population. Provincial health care acts cannot override the constitution. We have a constitutional, jurisdictional and legal mess on our hands.
