Take profit out of long-term care, publicly produce vaccines in Canada: NDP

We now have much data which shows -- in the words of one report -- there is a "lower quality of care" in privately owned, for-profit long-term care facilities than in public or not-for-profit homes.

In November, when it issued that report, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) suggested Canadian governments, both federal and provincial, should make moves to eventually abolish the for-profit long-term care sector. The CCPA said doing so should be a key part of any federal exercise in setting national standards for long-term care.
