What's wrong with two-tier care?

Interesting and worrying story in the Kelowna Daily Courier.
Norm Embree, chair of the Interior Health Authority, speaks candidly about cuts to care because of inadequate funding. He should get full marks for accountability.
But read on. What's wrong with two-tier health care, he asks?
He also questions whether residential care for seniors unable to live on their own should really be a health care responsibility, which raises a lot of questions, which, hopefully, he will answer.

Norm Embree speaks the truth, about Health Care, something clearly the NDP and Wilcocks are incapable of doing. Keep milking the sacred cow according to Wilcocks and forget that the system is unsustainable. Where does the money come from ? Tell us oh great know it all Paul,,,, .

Some of the money could come by getting rid of the highy paid health "authorities". The health costs are a fraction of what the do it yuurself system in the US of A.where there are lots of HMO's and well over 40 millions citizens with no health care at all.

For whom that reading this Two-tier health care is a term used by some to describe a situation that arises when there is a basic health care system financed by government providing medically necessary but perhaps quite basic health care services, and a secondary tier of care for those with access to more funds who can purchase additional health care not covered by the publicly financed system or which permits better quality or faster access.
