Lindsay McCreith

From the National Review of Medicine.

Asked whether a similar privatization push could happen in Ontario as a result of the recently-filed lawsuit by cancer patient Lindsay McCreith — which cites the 2005 Chaoulli decision as precedent (see "Chaoulli copycat cases crop up across country," Jan 15, 2007, Vol 4, No 1) — Mr. Michael McBane, the national co-ordinator of the Canadian Health Coalition says, "The Ontario government is not the Quebec government — the Ontario government believes in medicare. The Quebec government does not seem to."
