waiting lists so long it has become a driveway to the morgue.

Nice thread hijack. Is Tristan an acquaintance of yours?
Most health care services can be better provided by professionals working in private facilities.

Wow! Took my father-in-law, age 50, eighteen months. As a tradesman he collected disability during this time while stuck on the waiting list, because OHIP was too cheap to send him across the river to the U.S. where their hospital could have taken care of it that week.
Of course, my father-in-law is not politically connected - the currency of Canada's healthcare system.
Our local hospital recently announced it may have to shut down the maternity ward because some of the nursing staff got sick.
That is no different than the US. IN my office, every person has the option to join the health program. To this day, it still amazes me that the youth believe they are invincable and opt for no coverage. They are willing to take the risk and go to a public hospital where they get care.
My pet peeve, is a man has to have prostrate cancer before a prostrate cancer screening test is covered by the Ontario government. The Ontario government delisted eye care under the concept that eyesight is not medically necessary.
