Join us in court and hear, Joe Arvay, argue on behalf of the Coalition intervenors.
The Coalition intervenor arguments are a summary of the most important details and impacts of the case. Joe himself is a well known Constitutional lawyer who argued both the Carter and Bedford cases (which the plaintiff's happen to site in their challenge).
The intervenor group includes two patients, two doctors, Canadian Doctors for Medicare, and the BC Health Coalition. The patients in the intervenor group -- one living with Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy and other with AIDS -- represent those who stand to lose the most in this case. They are economically vulnerable people who rely on a high quality public health care system to provide life-sustaining care.
In addition, the physician members of the intervenor group are concerned that if the lawsuit successfully overturns the principle of Canadian health care - that care be based on need, not ability to pay- their patients’ health will suffer.
