- [O]nly 43 per cent of Canadians were able to see a doctor or nurse on the same or next day when they needed care… Half of them had to wait two or more hours for care in the emergency room… 30 per cent of them had to wait two or more months to see a specialist … and 18 per cent had to wait four or more months for elective surgery.

- What I mainly recall is politicians telling us over and over again down through the decades that Canadian medicare is the best health-care system in the world. You don’t actually hear that much anymore. What politicians mainly stress now is that our system is better than the American. Maybe it is — though if you’re after the very latest technology and technique, it probably isn’t.
