In response to federal cuts, many of the provinces set up review commissions to examine the provision and delivery of health services. In Quebec, for example, the Commission d’enquête sur les services de santé et les services sociaux, chaired by Jean Rochon, had recommended regionalization and decentralization in 1988, and the government moved forward in spite of opposition from the medical profession and some hospitals. The Gallant Commission in Nova Scotia stressed the importance of primary care and recommended transferring funds from medical services and hospitals to new regional entities. But the most contentious proposal was found in Alberta’s 1989 Rainbow Report — Our Vision for Health, which called for regionalization with an emphasis on primary care and prevention and, like the Gallant Report, recommended shifting resources away from institutional care. But, more important, the Alberta report recommended private financing to increase choice and to introduce market mechanisms into the health care system.
