Trudeau Cuts...

There's something I need to discuss, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

It's something that Justin Trudeau did, before the time of our Canadian Federal election.

Being our Canadian Prime Minister at that time, Justin Trudeau did something to HURT Canadians.

Here is an article by globalnews.ca that is entitled, EXCLUSIVE: Federal government cuts reimbursements for military health hospitals on the hook for millionshttps://globalnews.ca/news/6007117/military-health-care-cuts/?fbclid=IwAR0t_gazdI3_lCZ4XchZGygeOQ6Da0lKA0NusOFb2BhUH_w0aNX7MaaKb3Q.

In case you didn't read the article, I'm sharing some of what was stated (I copied/posted):

The federal government has quietly rolled back what it pays hospitals to take care of military members, according to multiple sources.
Global News has confirmed with sources within the military, provincial and federal governments that the federal government made major changes this spring to the fees it reimburses to hospitals when they provide health care to military members – and that’s leading to fears some members could be denied health care services.
Under the Canada Health Act and provincial health acts, members of the military are not eligible for public health coverage under provincial plans.
Instead, the federal government is constitutionally responsible for providing comparable medical care to all members, although more advanced medical care like surgery or MRIs is provided at the same hospitals used by civilians.
The military then reimburses the cost of providing those services to the hospital.
It’s effectively the same model used for treating out-of-province patients.
But sources tell Global News that the Department of National Defence ordered a cut to military healthcare spending earlier this year, and the fees reimbursed to hospitals for seeing military patients was one of the first items on the chopping block.
Set fees for services are laid out by provincial health plans.
For example, Ontario has one set of rates for services to provincial residents — those covered through OHIP — and uses a set of fees laid out by the Ontario Medical Association for services not covered by OHIP, which would apply to military members not covered by the provincial plan.
The federal government used to reimburse the cost of those at Ontario Medical Association rates, which can be roughly three times more expensive than OHIP rates.
Physicians could bill $105 for a psychiatric assessment under OHIP fees, for example — but under the OMA fees, they can charge $240 for providing that same service to those not insured through provincial health plans.
What those changes mean concretely is that the military will cover less of the fees physicians charge for services, leaving hospitals on the hook for millions of dollars.
At a campaign stop in Mississauga, Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer alluded to this story shortly after it broke Tuesday evening.
“We know that not only do these endless deficits lead to higher taxes, we also know that they threaten services,” he told a crowd of supporters. “And just again today, we found out that Justin Trudeau’s government was cutting back on services to veterans.”
Jeers and cries of “Shame!” can be heard as Scheer brings up Trudeau.
Scheer then says the Conservatives would “make sure” veterans “get the health care they need.”
Wow!

To me, it would have been a blessing if Andrew Scheer had been elected, for he would have then become our Canadian Prime Minister.  And he would have been able to help veterans... and fellow Canadians.

To me, it's sad for everyone who could have been treated well by Andrew Scheer if he had been elected and become our Canadian Prime Minister.

But, I have to admit that God provides for everyone who belongs to Him. 

He knows our needs... and provides for us after we've gained salvation and everlasting life by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Thinking of that, made me think of Philippians 4:19, "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.".

Amen!  But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

As I mentioned, I belong to God.

Do you?

If you haven't gained salvation, He won't supply for all your needs... for you won't belong to Him.

Also, if you have NOT gained salvation, then when your life ends here on earth, you will NOT receive everlasting life and will NOT be with Him.  You will then spend eternity in Hell... separated from God... with NO chance of escape.

Please... gain salvation.

If you do, you'll be blessed.


Until next time...
