  Two-tier, single-tierPDF files may take a moment to load

What constitutes an acceptable balance between public and private medical services? Alberta Premier Ralph Klein thinks he has the answer in contracting public services to private practitioners. Apparently, though, he claims a tier-two system is not in our future. Right...

The Canada Health Act guarantees universality of "medically necessary" services based on need and without financial barrier. Does Klein's main point regarding health care measure up to this standard?
