UCP posturing around public sector wages portends a return to perpetual crisis in health care
The United Conservative Party Government's transparent early manoeuvres around public sector wage negotiations and the heavy hints found in a paper by the chair of Premier Jason Kenney's "blue ribbon panel" on Alberta's finances portend a stormy period ahead in public sector labour relations, especially in health care. Since health care makes up such a significant portion of the Alberta and Canadian public sectors, this in turn signals a return to the perpetual crisis that is emblematic of the health-care system under Conservative rule. So if you were one of those Alberta voters for whom health care had ceased to be a front-burner issue under the capable leadership of former NDP health minister Sarah Hoffman (now the Opposition education critic), well … fasten your seatbelt!
