Green Party on Healthcare

The green party promises and shows involvement in the healthcare system. They have campaigned to increase dental care coverage for children and want to invest money into the care for the elderly as our population is aging. Compared to all other federal parties, the green party shows the most interest in improving the healthcare system including family doctors, treatment in rural areas, and health research. (http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2015/09/28/healthcare-canada-election_n_8195816.html) The green party is also rallying behind the petition for “Junior Docs” which is to prevent budget cuts that would cause trainees to work to be paid less for longer hours.
I think the Green Party is often overlooked because they don’t have the same campaigning budget as the Federals or the NPD. Yet, they still show some promise in a good party to have in the senate. Thought the party does not seem fit to run the country, at least having their consultation on improving healthcare and pushing for more environmentally friendly policies wouldn’t be a bad thing.
