Canadian Style Health Care

My situation is not unique. Orthopaedic services are in critical shortage across Canada. In Ontario alone, there are more than 32,000 people waiting for elective orthopaedic surgery, to say nothing of the uncounted patients with broken bones waiting, sometimes for weeks, to have them fixed.

Disgruntled patient?

National health care. A Hillary Clinton dream.
