They don't get cutting edge technologies because they are costs.
It would be cheaper if the government got the frick'in fingers out of it all.
Cell phones are better and cost a few percent of what they did 25-years ago.
Just get government OUT OF THE WAY and let the free market take over.
Even with their intrusions... it's still the best. Without question.
It's why a mildly complicated birth in Alberta can't be serviced in Edmonton or Calgary (Pop. 2.5 million)... and they have to send the family south of the border to a town of 65,000.
Quebec's Supreme Court ruled a waiting list does not constitute health care.
Europe's systems are crumbling... imploding on the weight... fewer people paying in... like 2 to 1... when it was 17 to 1 when they started... and baby boomers adding weight in huge numbers.
Socialized systems... co-ops always fail... especially government run co-op/ponzi schemes.
So stop the blarney. Please.
