Marois restricts access of off islanders to Montreal’s best health care!

Premier Marois is cutting back on off islanders attending the Jewish General Hospital is another example of the government’s unwillingness for Montreal institutions to thrive.
CRITIQ is calling upon the government to let Montreal thrive and give them special status!
Montreal should be granted greater powers over its health care decision making so that it can provide the best quality of care to anyone in need regardless of their address.
The Jewish General Hospital is a prime example of a victim of this restrictive policy of “repatriation”.

“Montreal requires special status because decision making in health care, as in other domains, is best made by the people providing that care, certainly not by bureaucrats in Québec City,” said Richard Yufe, a spokesman for CRITIQ.
