In fact, the CCF did form a government. Tommy Douglas and the CCF were elected as the government of the Province of Saskatchewan in 1944. The CCF brought in many programs designed to benefit all the people of Saskatchewan. The most important of these was a universal health care system, which we refer to today as "medicare." The CCF was re-elected as Saskatchewan's government several times and remained in office for almost 20 years. Tommy Douglas is still known in Canada as "the Father of Medicare." Every province in Canada now has a comprehensive health care system, and the federal government provides much of the funding to support them. A few years ago, in the most thorough study of public opinion ever undertaken, Tommy Douglas was declared the greatest Canadian who ever lived.
