I might be biased here, because I have fallen through EVERY crack of the Health Care System in this Country, but I think Canada is FAR away from where it should be.
I don’t think there is an excuse for how poorly our health care works (or doesn’t). It blows my MIND that people have to wait up to TWO YEARS to receive specialized care. This means that if YOU are diagnosed with cancer for example, you might be WAITING for a biopsy, then WAITING for an oncologist, then WAITING for treatment!
I think our Government should be ashamed of themselves, and I don’t know how many people have to pay with their health and ultimately their lives before something is done to improve the system.
Apparently I am not the only one who feels this way.
Below is a link to an interesting article The Canadian Press released yesterday.
I would LOVE to hear your thoughts on this, and you stories of how the health care system in Canada has impacted you. Please leave a comment!!
