Statement made on 26 April 2012 by Senator Céline Hervieux-Payette

Hon. Céline Hervieux-Payette:

My question for the leader was about Canada in particular, but we have also seen that the government's commitment to women's health outside the country has limits and that a Conservative rather than a Liberal approach is being taken to women's health.

The Prime Minister has always talked about open federalism. We are wondering what has happened to this openness because, after the conference of health ministers, he announced the new formula without undertaking any consultations. When will the Prime Minister hold a real federal-provincial health conference, focussed on health and especially on developing best practices for the health sector, instead of making threats every week about reduced accessibility and tolerating private sector involvement in the public sector, knowing that the number of health workers is limited and that, together with the provinces, we must devise new models that will be accessible to all Canadians?

When will the Prime Minister of Canada and the provincial ministers of health meet to discuss health?
