Videos debunk health care myths

Medicare less expensive, privatization not cheaper.

A panel of experts debunks some of the myths surrounding the "crisis" of the Canadian public health care system and the need for further privatization.

Some of these myths are: that Medicare is unsustainable and that costs are completely out of control, that privatization will reduce costs, and that privatization will reduce wait times in the public system.

This video explores these questions with a panel of experts: Bob Woollard, Bob Evans, Damien Contandriopoulos and Natalie Mehra. Moderated by Erica Johnson, from the CBC.

Frank Dobson, former British health secretary delivers a hard-hitting critique of private health care, and debunks some of the myths surrounding the "crisis" of the public health system.
