“It's a prescription to improve health care across Canada” —Healthscape

“Dr. Martin offers a timely and insightful perspective on Canada’s commitment to providing health care as a right to all people. The U.S. health care system has a great deal to learn from Canada and from Better Now.” —U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders
 
“Universal healthcare is at the very heart of a caring and equitable Canada. Danielle Martin provides us with a practical, accessible and deeply inspiring roadmap for how we can live up to that sacred promise. —Naomi Klein, author of This Changes Everything
 
"Dr. Danielle Martin has written an outstandingly useful book, for all Canadians, as the nation once again faces the challenges of ensuring effective health care for all. In doing so, Dr. Martin avoids the easy formulae of blanket solutions and properly roots health care’s future success in making hard choices on delivery, scope, and structure, based on Canadian values." —Roy Romanow, former Royal Commissioner on the Future of Health Care in Canada and Senior Fellow, Political Studies, University of Saskatchewan
 
"A clear-eyed, fearless and detailed manifesto, written with empathy and analytical‎ rigor. For doctors, patients and all Canadians, Better Now is an inspiring prescription for the right balance in our shared health care framework." —Hon. Hugh Segal, Master of Massey College, University of Toronto and former director of the Institute for Public Policy
