BC health ministry run by Chicken Little?


BC health minister George Abbott has promised the Conversation on Health won’t lead to privatized, US-style healthcare system. But critics worry his government's belie that promise, reports the CBC. The Conversation -- a series of public consultations -- wrapped up on July 7.

Coincidentally (or perhaps not), UBC health economist Robert Evans has just e-published (PDF) that examines the BC government's claims that the system's unsustainable. "What's the real issue?" asks Professor Evans. The answer: "The Inegalitarian Agenda." The chart below shows that Canadian healthcare spending as a proportion of GDP is, in fact, not really going up very fast at all.

I'm guessing Professor Evans isn't very popular in Victoria these days.
