True Universal Healthcare w/ NDP MP Don Davies

A fierce voice for equity in health care & the NDP Critic for Health in the 43rd parliament, MP Don Davies joins us to discuss the enormous challenges we face in dentalcare, Pharmacare, & making Tommy Douglas’s vision of a universal system of Medicare whole. We explore Liberal stalling, the Trudeau government’s opposition to policies supported by 90-plus percent of Canadians, and how broken Liberal campaign promises have led us to a point where the electorate is losing trust in the institutions that have the ability to change policy for the betterment of all. We don’t miss the opportunity to discuss the hard hitting issues - socialist values in our politics, the role of Canadians in enacting change, and Don’s world famous banana bread.
