    The Canadian Health Coalition advocates for the preservation and improvement of universal public health care across Canada.

    Tommy Douglas wrote “Unless there is a concerted effort to apply pressure on the Federal and Provincial governments, the erosion of Medicare will continue unabated and might even be accelerated. Our best hope lies in the Canadian Health Coalition…for the preservation and extension of Medicare.”
