Some days it just feels like whack-a-mole.
It’s another city, another privileged individual, and another plea for two-tier medicine.
Michel Bilodeau, described by the Ottawa Citizen as the dean of Ottawa’s hospital chiefs, says he supports the right of Canadians to buy private medical insurance to pay for health services covered under Medicare.
Bilodeau was recently enticed out of retirement from his $373,000/year job at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. He is serving as interim chief at Bruyere Continuing Care after the former CEO abruptly resigned.
Bilodeau says we have to stop considering the current system as dogma and look at what works and what doesn’t.
