Oh Green Party. You had me. You HAD ME. And then you said this: ” Expand healthcare coverage to include qualified complementary/alternative health professionals such as naturopaths, chiropractors, and dietitians.” and a bunch of other crazy shit about “cancer epidemics” and “toxins”.
1) Dietitians are not “alternative”.
2) Naturopaths and chiropractors are covered by private insurance. I don’t want my tax dollars going to either of those being included in national health care coverage. And why make the distinction “qualified”? Wouldn’t that be a given? Unless they need to clarify because of the shit-tons of nonsense among these groups. I’m sure there are responsible folks who send people to their GP at the first sign of serious trouble, but if we’re going to see someone and it’s that not serious in the first place did we need to see someone at all? And does it need to be covered by health care? Say what you will about the doctor shortage, this (opening the door to less qualified people to tinker around with clients) is not the solution.
So many reasonable-sounding things mixed in with crap. I even missed it the first time. But I’m going to write you a prescription: Take 1 science adviser and see me next election. Most of what you have to say is reasonable, but I can’t vote for junk science scare-mongering.
I’m not voting. Your parties all suck, Nova Scotia. Good luck.
