    Actually, Canadian breakthroughs in the medical field have been vast.
    From drug development, to surgical techniques and designs.
    It was a Canadian surgeon who first introduced the idea of hypothermia
    to make open heart surgery safer. The same two doctors that made cold chemical heart surgery safer also introduced the first idea of the heart pacemaker.
    Of course, the ever remembered Canadian Frederick Banting for isolating the cells that lead him to develop insulin for diabetes.
    Dr. Mak, a leading Canadian in medical science first discovered the mechanisms for T-cells....which has lead to many drugs to fight cancer, autoimmune disorders and transplant
    rejection. The list is many. And they rank highly among industrialized nations for producing substantive research papers.
    That being said, the average Canadian will owe more in taxes than they spend on housing, food and clothing 'combined.' That's a heck of a lot of taxes, mostly because of social healthcare. The system is good when it works, but too many fall thru the cracks on waiting lists. And I dare say, if Obamacare becomes the new U.S. standard, the multitudes of Canadian doctors that leave Canada for greener practicing pastures in the U.S., will
    ultimately stay in Canada......which will be good for Canada.....surely creating doctor shortages in the U.S. much like Canada experiences now.

    Yeah, but all the Canadian doctors worth a hoot are practicing in the U.S. as the pay scale for them up there sucks.

    Been to a U.S. ER lately, eh?

    Speaking French is a plus !!!

    The pay for doctors is capped in Canada. That is what will happen with Obamacare.
    Yes -almost two thirds of Canadian doctors will go to U.S. to practice. But the money
    and facilities incentives won't be there if Pres. Obama's healthcare initiative evolves into social healthcare like Canada. I know that is his goal, he's said so. And you can see it coming in the Obamacare legislation.

    Why is speaking french a plus??
    Are a lot of the doctors from Canada french speaking?
    Because (it seems) most of the doctors in Canada speak Arabic or Persian....
