Former Saskatchewan premier Roy Romanow has some strong ideas for health-care reform and on Oct. 16 he'll share them at Thompson Rivers University.
Romanow is known for making major reforms to health care in Saskatchewan during his 10 years as premier.
And over the summer, he made headlines by advocating for federal involvement in provincial health-care delivery and calling on Prime Minister Stephen Harper to meet with premiers.
Appointed by Governor General Adrienne Clarkson to head the Royal Commission on the Future of Health Care in Canada after his retirement from politics, he produced the Romanow Report in 2002.
His efforts led to an Officer of the Order of Canada honour in 2003.
He is currently chair of the advisory committee of the Canadian index on well-being at the University of Waterloo.
Romanow addresses locals at TRU's Irving K. Barber Centre at 12:30 p.m. during an instalment of the Barrett Lecture series.
