Canada’s health care system ‘stretched too thin,’ health minister says, as hospitals grapple with Omicron wave

NDP health critic Don Davies said on Friday it is encouraging that the federal health minister is “acknowledging reality” when it comes to health care capacity.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed chronic weakness in the public-health system, and the need to address this is real and the time is now, he said.

Mr. Davies added that there is a very strong consensus in the general public and among the provinces about the need for a “generational investment” in long-term funding that is stable and predictable, adding this can be achieved through an increase to the CHT.
