Trudeau recycles empty healthcare promise from 2019

Today, Justin Trudeau rolled out the exact same $6 billion promise on access to doctors that he promised in 2019 and subsequently failed to deliver.

The Canadian Medical Association recently said:

"The federal government has committed on numerous occasions to ensuring each Canadian has access to a primary care professional, but we have yet to see any real commitment to this ongoing issue." (April 2021)

Meanwhile, Trudeau voted against making the ultra-rich pay their share so that money can be invested in services like healthcare.

Jagmeet Singh:

“Justin Trudeau says the right thing about access to doctors, but his record shows that he has no intention of following through. People who don’t have access to doctors can’t afford Justin Trudeau’s empty promises anymore.”
