    They've come a long way from that Commi-Lib Trudeau, and from when Mulroney got slaughtered. But they're still out there, and yes Jetboogieman... Kanuckistani Kare is a mess, and that was obvious in a couple short decades after its institution... but it's tough to take candy from children, especially when there is a medical care safety net south of the border. Ask Stronach how great the system is and why she didn't wait her turn?

    They didn't have a crisis caused by the failure of the housing market because they do not have laws forcing banks to make bad loans. Quite the opposite in fact. That's a point in their favour.

    Pull My Finger: People aren't just denied, they do die waiting for care. That is why the Quebec Supreme Court ruled a waiting list does not constitute medical care. I know someone right at this minute who had an eye op go bad in Kanuckistan. This person went to the doc time after time... of course waiting their turn every time during those 18-months. If this person hadn't been persistent they wouldn't be on a further waiting list to get their eye repaired. In the US this would have be handles 18-months ago.

    Why would you be "scared" by a Harper government? That doesn't seem to make much sense. What are you afraid of?

    I had skin cancer on my lip diagnosed as herpes, even though I could look at it and see it wasn't. Then waiting until it was re-diagnosed, a wait for a trip to the specialist, then a wait for the biopsy results, another wait for the operation by a butcher, then two long waits and visits to a plastic surgeon for repairs.

    Many Canadians are happy with their health care because they don't know any better and believe that it's 'free'. They've become dependent and have no idea that it was once the best in the world before the bureaucracies took over. They just don't know.

    And that's what will happen in te States too, just as it has happened everywhere else.

    this post causes me to question why you did come down to the lower 48 to purchase the medical care you insist is better than that available to you in canada, in addition to being more responsive to your medical needs

    nothing prevented you from purchasing the medical services you required

    I would have done that if i had realized the ballsup it would eventually become. But we're looking at hindsight here.

    that tells me that you were content with the health care system you had, only until this singular experience

    Is that what it tells you?

    For some reason I have no interest in what the beliefs of a "justabubba" might be, or how you interpret the written word.

    And you have the right to sue if that happens.

    Is that correct?
