Preliminary Analysis of Ford Government Health Care Omnibus Bill

This Act takes the existing LHlNs and other key health care agencies and transfers them into a new Super Agency. At the same time, the Super Agency and the Minister are given new powers to order megamergers, takeovers, closures, transfers of health care services, including the privatization of public and non-profit health care services. There is no progressive language about the goals and principles, there are no democratic protections, there is no ability for the public to intervene in the transfers/closures/mega-mergers/privatization of their health care services. This is a radical piece of health restructuring legislation first and foremost and it requires continual health care restructuring in perpetuity as tong as this legislation is in existence.
