Petition: Public Dental Care

Posted on April 2, 2015

Hon. Irwin Cotler (Mount Royal, Lib.):

Mr. Speaker, the second petition calls upon the government and the House to examine the possibility of public dental care in Canada parallel to the private system. The petitioners remind us that as many as six million Canadians are not able to afford the dental care they need and that oral health care can be a matter of life and death.
