July 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of medicare in Saskatchewan

Saskatchewan led the way for medicare in Canada when it passed the Saskatchewan Medical Care Insurance Act on November 17, 1961, and after two delays became effective on July 1, 1962.

This blog will be posting articles and information on the historic battle that was fought in Saskatchewan to implement medicare.

In particular, this blog will be focusing on the "friends and foes" of medicare...the forces that fought for it and those vested interests that opposed it.

Posts on medicare battles and privatization today will connect old fights with new ones but still the same foes.

Please contact NYC at if you have contributions to make to the blog.
