Friends of Medicare Petition

A message from the Friends of Medicare:

Sign and share our petition to stop health care premiums

Dear Friends,

The Alberta Government has been openly musing about charging Albertans for health care to deal with its revenue shortage with the low price of oil. Health care premiums are a regressive tax that will negatively impact lower- and middle-income Albertans. Friends of Medicare, since our founding more than 35 years ago, has always held the position that health care should be based on need, not on ability to pay.

We have started a petition campaign to tell the government that health care premiums are not the answer to their revenue problem. Sign and share our online petition and download our printable petition to collect signatures from your family members, friends, and neighbours, and mail it back to us.

To read more about our thoughts on health care premiums, check out this blog post we wrote. If we all make our voices heard, we can stop the Alberta Government from charging Albertans for health care!
