Growing health care costs should be monitored to ensure efficiencies
Financial Post
In a perfect world of universal health care, a dollar spent would be a dollar put to good use. Yet rankings of Canada's health care performance paint a less-than-ideal picture. Aging populations and the prospect of lower tax revenues, years of escalating costs that far exceed GDP growth, and outdated funding and management models are putting greater pressure on the sector as a whole.

Hospital: 'Unfair' to discipline staff for Winnipeg man's death during ER wait
Winnipeg Free Press
An internal hospital review following the death of a man in a Winnipeg emergency room concluded it would be "unfair" to discipline staff even though 17 employees observed the double amputee over his 34-hour wait for care. The internal review was conducted by the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority a month after Brian Sinclair died while waiting at the city's Health Sciences Centre in September 2008.

Alberta's College of Physicians and Surgeons declares war on patients
Troy Media

Hundreds of Albertans are alive today because they took charge of their health and escaped the waits to which patients are routinely subjected inside the government's health care monopoly.
