A man fighting against Canada’s publicly-funded health care system squared off against a former politician who helped defend it in another entry to the Great Canadian Debates on May 2, 2017.

Dr. Brian Day, an orthopaedic surgeon whose court case is challenging Canada’s single-payer health care model, argued in favour of the motion: “Our broken health care system is infringing the rights of Canadians”.

Ujjal Dosanjh, a former British Columbia premier and federal minister of health, argued against.

The two debaters discussed the matter on CBC Radio One’s Ottawa Morning. The debate was also livestreamed on CPAC.
