Cambie Case Update

NationBuilder r1

Dear Paov --

After 104 witnesses, almost 180 days and 30,000 pages of evidence, Brian Day’s challenge to our public health care system is almost over! Closing Statements will take place over 3 weeks, from November 18 - December 5, 2019.

We’ve got this far together - thank you! Now we need to go the distance and make a strong finish. Please donate today for this final push to make our case that Canada’s public health care system must be based on need, and not on the ability to pay.

It will cost almost $100,000 for our lawyers to complete and give their Closing Statements in court on December 4th. They must wade through the evidence, be present in the court room to hear what Cambie’s lawyers are arguing, and then come up with the words needed to convince the judge that the legislation Brian Day is attacking actually safeguards our public health care system. We need to ensure that we don’t go down the road of US-style health care with its punitive private insurance market and for-profit hospitals.


Your donation will help us make a stand for everyone in BC and right across the country, as this case is sure to make its way to the Supreme Court of Canada. Let’s stand together and say loudly and clearly that our health care system is not for sale.

Health care is a human right and, in this province and across this country, we value helping our neighbour. We reject Day’s argument that those who can pay out of pocket should get faster service while the public system gets starved of doctors, nurses, and technicians, and wait times only get longer.

Support public health care today, and donate to help put a stop to Brian Day and Cambie Corp.

Thank you!

In solidarity,

Edith MacHattie
Co-Chair, BC Health Coalition
