Alberta NDP response to Question 12

Question:  What are your plans for cancer treatment in Calgary?

The split-site plan that Stephen Mandel and Jim Prentice have proposed to Calgarians (and by extension Southern Albertans) is not what has been promised to the region since 2005. This is not a comprehensive, single-site, under-one-roof cancer care centre. The lack of a comprehensive, single-site facility will be especially felt by high or complex needs patients, who may not be able to procure all of the services they need at one or the other facilities.

Rachel Notley has stated that an NDP government will include the Foothills cancer centre in its first budget and begin construction as soon as possible, based on the original plan, rather than the PCs’ new plan for downgrading and splitting the facilities.
