Trudeau-led government will invest in Canadians’ health and home care: Kamal Khera
Brampton/ Oct.1, 2015 – A Liberal government will modernize our health care system, and make a real and immediate investment in home care for Canadians, said Kamal Khera, Liberal candidate for Brampton West, today.
“Canadians here in Brampton and across the country take great pride in our health care system. Not only is universal health care the bedrock of middle class security, but it ensures that we remain healthy, happy, and productive throughout our lives,” said Mr Khera. “That is why a Liberal government will make sure our health care system is sustainable, and can meet the challenges of our aging population by prioritizing and investing in home care.”
A Trudeau-led Liberal government will re-engage on Canadian health care and negotiate a new Health Accord with provinces and territories, including a new, long-term agreement on funding. This will include:
- An immediate investment of $3 billion over the next four years to prioritize additional and improved home care services for all Canadians;
- Improving access and reducing the cost of prescription medications;
- Pan-Canadian collaboration on health innovation; and
- Increasing the availability of high-quality mental health services.
