I think there is an important argument to be made for including healthcare in a public safety mobile spectrum. In our increasingly technologically driven world, it is much more common to see smart phones, laptops and tablets actively involved in the work life of many Canadians. This practice, as you have pointed out, is common within the healthcare field as well.

It is very important that healthcare professionals have the ability to perform their duties as necessary and therefore ensuring their ability to do so is critical. I support the initiative to include healthcare within the Public Safety mobile spectrum.

The Green Party is committed to providing Canadians with efficient and effective healthcare. Spending taxpayer’s money wisely is an important factor in creating an efficient healthcare system. As we move into the future our health care system will only become more and more dependent on technology. Through mobile communication and data transmission, the health care system will be able to move away from paper based system and save our health care system money. As you have demonstrated, including healthcare as part of the Public Safety mobile spectrum can help achieve this.

Thank you for taking the time to write.
