Mr. John Solomon (Regina—Lumsden—Lake Centre, NDP)
Pursuant to Standing Order 36, Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to present a petition from many Canadians.
These people are very unhappy with the Liberal cuts to health care. They are unhappy with the $30 billion we have lost in health care funding from the federal government. They are especially unhappy with the $700 million in lost revenue at the federal level in Saskatchewan. They are opposed to the Liberals and the Alliance driving our health care system toward the American style privatized system.
The petitioners are asking parliament to stop for profit hospitals and restore federal funding of health care, to increase the federal government's share of health care funding to 25% immediately, and to implement national prescription drug and home care programs.
Topic: Routine Proceedings
