A new Conservative government will invest $1.5 billion in its first term to purchase MRI machines and CT machines to replace aging equipment and add machines across the country, reducing wait times for potentially life-saving tests for Canadians
Hundreds of thousands of Canadians wait longer than the recommended time for an MRI or a CT scan. That is just not good enough. This investment will help our health care providers to deliver quality services with the most up-to-date technology, giving patients quicker access to reliable, potentially life-saving tests.
Justin Trudeau’s never-ending deficits and out-of-control spending have put Canada on track to hit $1 trillion in debt by 2035. If Trudeau is given four more years, his debt and never-ending deficits will threaten our ability to deliver quality public services like health and social programs.
A new Conservative government will live within its means to protect health care in the long term. As written in a letter to all Premiers in August 2019, as Prime Minister, Andrew Scheer will maintain and increase the current funding formula for the Canada Health Transfer and the Canada Social Transfer.
Canadians need a government that understands that balancing the budget is the best way to maintain the services that they rely on the most, including health care.
