Canada ‘looking at all tools’ to address systemic racism in health-care system, health minister says

Asked whether the Trudeau government would consider changes to the Canada Health Act to address systemic racism in the health-care system, Health Minister Patty Hajdu said Friday the government was open to “looking at all tools,” especially those identified by Indigenous communities.

Hajdu made the comments during a joint media availability with Indigenous Services Minister Marc Miller and Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett. The ministers spoke after a meeting with Indigenous community leaders about racism in the health-care system.

Miller added the federal government needs provinces to introduce systemic change to Canada’s health-care system – adding that Ottawa doesn’t have the power to reform licensing bodies on its own.

    Why is this argument in countries that have every creed, religion and race living under one flag? Why have this problem, but not homogenized countries? Seriously though this is political not racial….

    The only systematic racism that exists is that against the founding peoples of this nation.

    Wht people the rapidly declining demographic in this nation all while our people and culture are increasingly, implicitly or explicitly attacked, and why should we accept this? …Because they might call us mean names? If this was happening to any other group it would be labeled a genocide.
