Highway of Tears


Yesterday, Transportation Minister Claire Trevena announced that the BC government has no plans to replace the Greyhound service along the Highway of Tears -- despite the fact that without it, the lives of Indigenous women and girls will be put at risk. [1]

Highway 16 is known as the Highway of Tears because of the high number of primarily Indigenous women and girls who have gone missing or been murdered while hitchhiking. [2] When Greyhound announced plans to cancel their bus service on the route, Minister Trevena said that the BC Government would make sure that communities along the highway have access to safe, reliable and affordable transportation. [3]

We need to let Minister Trevena know that not having a plan is not an option. A massive petition signed by thousands of people in BC could be enough to force the Minister to act, and put safe and affordable transportation in place before the Greyhound service ends in May.

So, Supa, will you add your name now?

Cambie Case Resumes Monday

NationBuilder r1

Paov --

This Monday, April 9th, the court case launched by for-profit clinic CEO Brian Day resumes. 

Save Canada's Public Health CareIn Canada, everyone is covered by public insurance and we can get basic treatment and care, no matter how much money we have. Under our current laws, private insurance companies don't get to decide who gets care and who doesn't.

Brian Day wants to change that.  

He is trying to use the courts to change Canada's health care system so that:

Patients > profit

NationBuilder r1

Dear Paov --

It’s a clear turn away from the “don’t ask, don’t tell” approach to unlawful private billing practices at private clinics in BC.

Yesterday, Health Minister Adrian Dix announced that the BC government will bring into full force the Medicare Protection Amendment Act—a law that was passed 15 years ago—in order to strengthen the province’s powers to stop unlawful private fees and to protect patients. [1]

This is very good news.

The province’s plan to clean up unlawful private billing, combined with the Surgical and Diagnostic Imaging Strategy to drive down wait times in the public system, will mean patients will get faster access to care without facing steep private fees. [2] [3]

37,000 additional MRIs

Paov 

We can do amazing things when we act together.

Just last week, the province announced a historic strategy to dramatically reduce surgical wait times and modernize our surgical system - by acting on recommendations we have been making for years.

But the good news doesn’t stop there.

Today, Health Minister Adrian Dix announced another huge investment in our public system—this time in MRIs and diagnostics. This public investment means an additional 37,000 MRI exams across the province this year so that British Columbians can get timely scansand ultimately timely health care. [1]

For too long B.C. has allowed public MRI waits to grow while allowing a market for private MRI clinics to flourish. When faced...

Huge victory - BCs new strategy for reducing

NationBuilder r1

Dear Paov --

Your work to get action on long surgical wait times just paid off in a big way!

Edith MacHattie, BCHC co-chairWe just got back from an event with the Premier and Health Minister at Vancouver General Hospital and we’re excited to share with you the details of the province’s new strategy to tackle surgical wait times.

The strategy announced today will mean that thousands of people in B.C. will get the surgery they need faster. The plan implements many of the BCHC’s recommendations to modernize our surgical system. [1]

At the announcement, the health minister acknowledged you - BC Health Coalition members - for your tireless work championing innovative solutions...
