Threats to Health Care Erode Canadian Social Fabric
Threats to health care, like those featured in the the Toronto Star yesterday, undermine our entire social fabric and are especially disturbing for those who view our health care system as a model for other social services. The notions of environmental and social factors for health, accessibility, and community that are embedded in the Canada Health Act are features that other social service sectors aspire toward. In the field I work in, adult education and literacy, we are still working for some of the policy shifts that occurred for health care back in the 1970’s and 80’s.
