According to Macleans ... some of the things that the conservatives are offering that people might like are:
- Health care increases of ~3% / year
It was 6% before Harper cut it, not sure what it is now. It was John Diefenbaker, a Progressive Conservative that originally said the federal government will match dollar for dollar what the provinces pay - what is that ratio today?
Is that right?

From what I can see, health care increases under Harper were around 6%... Under trudeau, the figures seem to fall to around 3-4%.

So, the conservatives aren't necessarily planning a great increase in health care funding, but the are promising to at least maintain the status quo of steady increases that have been going on.
