Tommy Douglas was named “Greatest Canadian” for creating the Canadian single-payer system. But the drive to ensure care for all didn’t originate in his political life. It developed in the role Douglas reluctantly left after being persuaded to run for office: Baptist minister.

1. *Actually* duplicate the movement. This means patients at the very centre, controlling the agenda. It means getting political and getting theatrical. It means civil disobedience. It means a broad mass movement. It means partnership not co-option 8/12

It was *patient* activism that turned the tide. It was groups like in the US or Treatment Action Campaign in South Africa, groups that could shut down the FDA or raise 10,000 people to march in Cape Town. It was not celebrity or academics 3/12

“Churches can also play a role in advocating for some of the systemic changes we need. A lot of the impetus behind the civil rights movement was the black church, and churches can play that same role in healthcare.”
