B.C. joins rest of Canada in eliminating medical premiums for health care

B.C. residents will stop paying monthly medical-service premiums for health care as of January. The premiums have also been scrapped for employers, but they'll have to pay a so-called Employer Health Tax, based on total payroll. Premier John Horgan says B.C. is joining other jurisdictions across Canada by scrapping medical premiums and businesses will pay a "small, small sliver" of costs" toward a more equitable system.
