Health Summit

Tomorrow, the First Ministers Conference will determine the future of health care for a generation. At stake is the foundation of Canadian society of which we are most proud -- universal medical care. Created, essentially, by Tommy Douglas half a century ago, every Canadian alive today has benefited from the program.

There is great cause for concern before the summit begins. Alberta appears to be moving towards two tiered health care and all over the country private clinics are popping up. Health care costs are spiraling upwards and as the population increasingly ages the situation will only grow worse.

Prime Minister Martin pledge during the election to preserve health care for a generation. He won this spring's election largely on the basis of that promise. Tomorrow, he must deliver.

Time for Martin to step up on his campaign promises. It's going to be a tough fight.
