Private health-care proponents lose bid for court fee exemption in landmark trial
from CBC News
The plaintiffs in a landmark trial challenging B.C.'s public health-care system have lost their bid to be exempt from daily court fees, according to a B.C. Supreme Court ruling. The Cambie Surgery Centre, a private clinic in Vancouver, along with another private clinic and four patients, launched a lawsuit to challenge B.C.'s ban on the purchase of private insurance for medically necessary services that are already covered by the public system. It argues the restriction — and the resulting hospital wait times — violates a constitutional right to life, liberty and security of the person.
