quote:In his 2002 Throne Speech Reply, Stephen Harper said: "A government monopoly is not the only way to deliver health care to Canadians. ... It (the federal government) must remove any barriers, any chill to increase private capital investment plans that the provinces have for our health-care system." In this election campaign, Stephen Harper announced that, if elected, he would "not tolerate a parallel private system." Perhaps Stephen Harper thinks that the Canadian public has collective amnesia, or that we all have early onset Alzheimer's.
