Members of SOHC Executive recently interviewed the following candidates running in the upcoming federal election in the Central Okanagan-Similkameen-Nicola riding:

Angelique Wood – NDP
Karley Scott – Liberal

We were unable to arrange an interview with Green Party candidate, Robert Mellalieu.

The candidates were asked to respond to the following health care issues:

  • national pharmacare
  • a national strategy on senior’s care
  • the proliferation of private for-profit health care services
  • access to services for people living in rural/remote areas of the province
  • eradication of poverty
