Turf Tyler Shandro
About Tyler Shandro
Shandro has defied Alberta mayors, fired hard-working union members, and privatized services. 98% of doctors want him fired. (Were the other 2% his family?) Shandro and his wife Andrea even own a private health care company in Calgary – Vital Partners – https://www.vitalpartnersinc.com/about-us.
We need to protect Canada’s public health care system. Since the days of Tommy Douglas (the founder of the CCF/NDP), Canada has been the envy of the world in stopping two tier medicare that benefits only the rich.
Shandro’s actions have even triggered province-wide strikes by labour unions.
It’s time to stop Tyler Shandro and his agenda of corruption and private health care dead in its tracks. Let’s protect our public health care system for all, and not just the entitled rich people who would benefit from an American-style health care system that Shandro and his wife Andrea support.
