1. Interesting blog, Tristan. I’d love to see some sort of online budgeting tool
    used for the health care issue, so that Canadians could weigh the impacts of
    various components of the health care system (i.e. what the cost-benefit impact
    of pharmacare would be, hiring general practitioners in rural communities versus
    nurse practitioners).

    Another important piece of any public engagement on the
    topic is education – Canadians must understand the basics of the Canada Health
    Act (who is responsible for what, which services are actually covered by the
    public purse by law) and more importantly, about the ticking demographic time
    bomb with our aging baby boomer parents. Informed participation would certainly
    lead to more informed decision making
