Canada has filed a lawsuit against the government, claiming it is violating Canada’s rights by making a health care system so expensive that it’s unsustainable.
Lawyer Michael Hogue says he’s seen hundreds of complaints from patients and doctors about the government’s decision to cut off payments to hospitals and clinics in Canada and across the world.
Hogue said he is calling on the federal government to settle the suit, which he expects to be filed this week.
Canada’s government says it will pay $30.5 billion in damages to compensate for the costs of covering ailing hospitals, clinics and other health care facilities, including the loss of jobs.
Hockey is expected to meet with the families of victims in the case Monday.
