See there is no universal health care service in Canada. If you think there is, then you are stuck in lala land.

1.Can we afford to suppot the refugees until they can learn the language, get a job and stand on their own?
2. Can our health care system take on more patients who will not be able to help pay for the system for at least a few years?
No we cannot afford to support refugees. Not the province anyways. The provincial governments are stuck with the bill.........

tell that to Ontario. When the fedreal PCPC dediced to spend millions of taxpayer dollas to bring Lebanonese/Canadian dual citizens home, Ontario chose to wave the 3 month waiting period before a Canadian outside of Canada for over 184 days, can receive taxpayer paid medical services.
Everyone is forgetting that with liberals, progressives and liberal lite PCPC's like Harper, there is always enough money. Governments have no revenue problems, they have expenditure problems.

Five years ago I had a hernia operation and was totally disgusted with the hospital. Found out later that the hospital had not properly sterilized their equipment for years.
I am in the process of getting my own insurance and setting up an account with a private clinic in Vancouver. Enough is enough.

This is a moral issue.
It is pure evil to prevent:
(a) a doctor from selling his medical expertise to a patient at a mutually agreeable price; or
(b) a patient from paying a medical expert for his/her services.
It's not just that the provincial monopolies are serving us poorly (and they ARE...I waited ONE YEAR for an MRI to find out whether I had a distended blood vessel - one feeding my brain - that was about to burst...fortunately, I didn't...it only takes a sneeze or a fall to burst such a vessel and cause massive brain damage...as happened to one of my friends).
Advocates for a government monopoly on health insurance are evil bastards and, if I lived in one of those towns in the USA that allowed tresspassers to be shot, I'd have my gun at the ready for the first commie bastard that stepped foot on my land with a "Ban Private Healthcare" leaflet in his hand.
They are killers...cannibals, who hope to survive by making others suffer and die. It happens in Canada - the supreme court of canada found that to be the case, and struck down Quebec's ban on private health insurance.
Oh, but that was just the Supreme Court of Canada. What do they know, right Kommrade?

Is it due to your and most Canadians belief that our Medical Care System is one of our values, no matter how poor it is and how many deaths it causes?
