    Perhaps students dislike Harper but that's why they are students. They're still part of the learning process.

    But adults seem to like Harper just fine.

    LOL, really? Can you link me because I am not feeling the love in my part of Canada.

    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.
    Grant, do you honestly think that what you have just described here has not happened to someone else in the US? Please.

    Bottom line, you are one of the very few Canadians that I know of who would rather Canada use the current American healthcare system. In fact, this is the very first time I have witnessed it.

    Instead of relying on your feelings, Middlegrund, why don't you look at the polls.

    Who said I would prefer the current American health care system? In fact I have been critical, Do you know how to use quotes?

    I’ve witnessed long waits for some people with health problems, but I’ve NEVER seen or heard of anyone dying because they couldn’t get care. As bubba pointed out, we even spend too much keeping people alive who’d rather be dead.

    If you are near deaths door, you get bumped to the head of the line, pronto, even if you have to take it upon yourself to go to emergency… We have too many people using Emergency for silly reasons, that’s about it…

    I would agree that is one of the dumbest things I’ve read in awhile. Not partisan at all either.

    But, back to topic, yes, we have a bunch of effing yahoo’s running our country too. Canadians had two concerns of late.

    1. Keeping their jobs, job creation
    2. NO ELECTION

    Ah well, at least the bud in BC is strong enough to tune them out, and I won’t be doing 10 years for having a roach in my ashtray…

    Peace
    Then why do so many Canadians come here for healthcare? Perhaps because of those six-month waiting lists?

    I have. It seems the adults--once again-- don't like Harper enough to give him a majority again. Sad, but true.

    That is the big fallacy.

    The government does not run our healthcare.

    It funds it.

    Big difference.

    Your shift from "I am not feeling the love in my part of Canada" to "don't like Harper enough to give him a majority again" (he didn't have a majority) has not gone unnoticed

    Here's one poll. Where's yours?

    Oh really? Then this should be explained to the Provincial and Federal Health Ministries, as well as the bureaucracies who answer to them.

    Provincial/Territorial Role in Health - Health Care System Delivery - Health Canada

    Check to see who issues your own health care card, who pays the doctors and who negotiates their salaries.
