It has been one month since the federal election, and discussions about health care reformnever prominent during the electionseem to be even further away from the public spotlight. Nonetheless, some are trying to get their remedies noticed. The usual suspects like the Health Council of Canadamade up of councilors appointed by the federal, provincial, and territorial governmentshave put forward their recommendations for improving Canadas health care system.

Health care reform has once again become a common dialogue around the water cooler as the 10-year $41 billion funding agreement between the feds and the provinces is set to expire in 2014.

Canadian politicians and policymakers would be wise to ignore them and take this opportunity to introduce real reform.
