END FOR-PROFIT SENIORS’ CARE IN B.C.

Dear Premier Horgan,
I am calling on you to take action to eliminate the profit motive from residential seniors’ care and move to a non-profit, publicly delivered system in B.C.
Study after study has confirmed that seniors in for-profit care receive inferior support and suffer worse health outcomes compared to those in publicly-funded or non-profit alternatives. That’s because the profit motive inherent in private systems is directly at odds with spending money on things like adequate staffing or decent pay and benefits.
