Quite a chunk of money for a person on a fixed income

As a senior, I recently moved to British Columbia from Alberta. When I retired in Alberta, my health care was at no cost to me, along with a basic Blue Cross program that could be topped up if I wanted. Now, in British Columbia, it costs me over $90 for my wife and me each month.  That’s over $1,080 a year. For me, that’s quite a chunk of money for a person on a fixed income. As well, we’ve been without a dental plan for the past five years and haven’t seen a dentist as it’s too expensive. All medical and dental coverage should be the same across this country.
