In Canada you wait to get treated for your illness. In many cases over a year. Unless you’re connected like the head of the Canadian Auto Workers Union who got a knee replacement in a week. If you’re connected to the government they send you to private health care, in many cases in the US.

If you’re a common peon you wait a year to find out what that painful lump is.


Right now in BC the NDP is sending cancer patients to private clinics in Washington State. Numeorus NDP cabinet ministers have used the private Cambie Street Surgery Centre, which was established at the urging of the NDP in order to allow union workers to avoid the public system wait lists.

As an MP you join federal prisoners, military RCMP in using private clinics – as did former CAW head Buzz Hargrove to get knee surgery in a week in a private clinic while the average Cdn waits over a year in the public system.
17,032 patients died waiting for diagnostic scans and surgery in 2022-23 – but not one connected politician. They don’t wait b/c they use private clinics.

I think the Left has given up on selling socialism

Now it's just, Orange man bad, as well as Orange man Junior, that is, anyone that follows after him.

Keep it simply stupid, cuz voters be stupid.

Besides, January 6th and ballot harvesting.

Single payor private delivery isn't socialism.

To the U.S.? Surely our system has been socialist since the Obama years?
 
The closest thing we have to socialism is the VA hospital system... That's been around long before Obama was even born.

But we were assured that if Obamacare passed the U.S. health care system would be socialist. So surely that's what it must be now.

Who told you that? Single player,. private delivery isn't socialism.
