Canadian Healthcare Reform Act
This act shall be referred to as the Canadian Healthcare Reform Act
Proposal By: Artorius Perim and JB Furglar
The Canadian Healthcare Reform Act will replace the expired Canadian Health Services Expansion Act
Section 1 Purpose:
Currently, Healthcare has been going through a period of relative inactivity and confusion as of late, and with the current mechanical changes brought about by the introduction of 'eRepublik Rising' it has become increasingly necessary to make serious changes to the Healthcare system in this country. Recently, Artorius Perim carried out extensive studies into what the people wish to see in the healthcare system in this country, they can be found here:
As you can see from this survey, the people have been angling greatly for a change, and as congressional representatives I believe it is your duty to take note of the will of the people and represent accordingly, therefore, in saying this, we wish to achieve a health system that is fair, as little roleplay as possible, one which educates and informs and one which is geared towards getting new citizens as involved in the community as possible.
One of the main purposes of this act is to provide discounted food from the Market that will raise a certain amount of wellness or happiness to struggling eCanadians who have trouble with keeping up their Wellness or Happiness. This act will reform and recreate our system of Healthcare in eCanada to work with eRepublik V2 (aka Rising).
This was no easy task, but we believe the following bill gives a broad and comprehensive coverage of what a health service should be doing and what regulations should be imposed in the creation of the best healthcare system possible, which is what is best for the progression of eCanada into both Rising and V2. This bill offers flexible options and directions in order to provide eCanada with HealthCare that will last for a long period of time, until we will need another reform to fit a new version of eRepublik.
