Backstage Manager(inactive) BS: Federal election (Canada) (135* d) RE: BS: Federal election (Canada) 22 Jun 04


I absolutely agree that Tommy Douglas is the father of Medicare.

However, Pearson did not bring in the universal medicare that every Canadian in every province is entitled to in 1966. Pearson brought in a form of *health insurance* that was still a long way from universal medicare.

*Universal medicare* was brought in during the Trudeau era.
