Ahead of the 2020 provincial election this Saturday, October 24, we have prepared the 2020 Provincial Election Primary Care Report Card to support our members and the public in evaluating the major party platforms as they relate to health care.
We evaluated the publicly available platforms of the BC Green Party, BC Liberal Party and BC New Democratic Party (NDP) against our four key indicators:
- Every British Columbian has access to a well-supported family doctor
- Indigenous health and cultural safety
- Addressing the overdose crisis
- Pandemic readiness and response
While an overall rating is provided for each party, we recommend reviewing the evaluations for each individual indicator. The indicator ratings have not been weighted, as we know reader opinions may differ as to the importance of each indicator. This report does not represent an endorsement of any one party.
Please read our report to learn more about each party’s evaluation.
The report was also distributed to provincial media. View the media release here and share with your networks as appropriate.
We welcome your feedback on this report and your thoughts on what you would like to see from the next government.
