The Wait Line is synonymous with Canadian Identity

Jay links to a video on the Canadian health care system produced a few years back that is every bit as relevant today as it was then. Welcome to Canada where your pets are permitted better care than you and your family. Runtime: 24:45

cp: Dust My Broom

Oh, wipe the tears from my face. Boo-hoo, boo-hoo.

Are your legs broken? All you have to do is cross the open border to the USA to access your two tier health care. It works for Belinda. Instead of complaining about the sodomization of the peasants (you not being a peasant, but some dry as dust intellectual, in your air-conditioned in summer, heated in winter, carpeted, and well provisioned ivory tower), why don't you just do what everyone else is doing? If the lump in your chest bothers you, go to an American clinic? They advertise here, and they speak Canadian.

You miss the point. Why are we forced to go elsewhere to get timely treatment? Why aren't we allowed the same rights as dogs - freedom of choice with our health options - RIGHT IN OUR OWN COUNTRY!

Because we don't live in a free country. It pretends to be one, but as long as it embraces this sacred cow, we'll never have freedom of choice here.

That was a great video - watched the whole thing. I would like to see the feature-length film that was due out in 2006. Is it available?

I've read some American blogs re: our health care system and many Yanks laugh at how we wait in line like good little communists.
