In Canada, if you get bad medical care, accept it, or they could just kill you...

    Yep.... when the government controls your healthcare, they will treat you like the cog in the wheel you are... easily replaced or disposed of...

    Under socialized medicine, it doesn't take long to go from suicide as a "choice" to suicide as a pushed "product" to suicide as a murder for bureaucratic "convenience."

    Over in Canada, it's gotten to stage two.

    Roger Foley is a 42-year-old man with a terminal neural disease that makes it nearly impossible for him to move his arms or legs or even speak. Under Canada's zero-choice socialized medicine, he's gotten absolutely crappy care from a Canadian home care service, one of whose many violations has put him in the hospital for food poisoning, which is where he's at now.

    He states that when he complained about the bad service, he was told to go kill himself – politely, of course, since it's the Canadian way. He's saying "no," and now there's a lawsuit to force the Canadian socialized medical system to allow him some choice as to how he's going to manage his own care, given the failures of the bureaucrats who chose for him. Obviously inspired by the Charlie Gard dilemma in the U.K., the bureaucrats are fighting back, determined to ensure he gets the substandard quality of medical care he's already gotten, with the only "out" in suicide.

    A great deal for them, you see.

    Here is how one expert described the problem, according to CTV a few months ago:

    According to Trudo Lemmens, a professor and Scholl Chair in Health Law and Policy at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Law, Foley's allegations – if true – are "very troubling."

    "If true, we would have here an instance of a patient receiving an offer for MAID (medical assistance in dying) while the patient precisely complains about receiving substandard levels of care," Lemmens said in an email to CTV News. "MAID should not be introduced as an option to someone who complains about sub-standard care and clearly not to someone who is suicidal."

    For seven years I lived in a town near the Canadian border.

    One of the things you didn't do was schedule an appointment with a doctor on Monday because that was the day the Canadians would come down for medical care.

    They would rather pay for health care in the US than to get that free socialist stuff.

    Put government bureaucrats and politicians in charge of your health care. The same kind of nitwits that run the DMV and fix potholes. What could possibly go wrong?

    Fortunately, this all has nothing to do with the possibility of humane healthcare for everyone.

    Canadians have a choice of free state run health care or private health care or a combination of both. So more choice than in the US.

    The Canadians sitting in those doctor's offices were choosing American health care.

    It would really suck for the filthy ass government to make you pay for a healthcare system and it be so bad that you chose private care. No wonder Canadian taxes are so high.

    Kind of like the fucked up public school system in the US. You get taxed for a terrible government run system but if you have the means you pay for a private schools for your children.

    I’m calling bullshit. I live a half hour drive from the US border and I don’t know ANYONE who goes to the US for care around here.

    Your hospitals charge hundreds of dollars for simple tests that we do here for $50.

    You post an article from the American Stinker, as if an extreme win biased radical right wing fake news site would have anything close the accurate reporting.

    America (In Gold We Trust!) has made it clear that money is considered more important than life.
