Mr. Speaker, I do not know about the first part of that response, but he might want to check the record and apologize to Canadians after that.
Taking health care away from the most vulnerable is unethical, it is wrong and will cost Canadians more. When chronic diseases do not get treated, when preventive care cannot be accessed, people end up in the ER. The government knows that. Who pays? Canadians and taxpayers together.
Can the government tell us how much more this will cost the Canadian health care system by denying this right to the most vulnerable?
