My initial reactions to this are positive. The long awaited report on the future of public medical insurance in Canada has come out...

In these times of socialist retreat, one small pillar will(may) remain.

The socialist medical insurance system in Canada stands in anitithesis to the capitalist claims.

I'll leave it at that...

I definatley do not want to see a privatised medical system. I think this may be a step in the right direction.

41 million people without health coverage in USA. What's that? 1 in 7? Soon to rise to 1 in 6?
The USA spends way more on private health insurance than Canada spends on public, all the while ignoring 15 percent of it's population.

One reason is the massive bureacracy needed to sort through all the different health plans. How's that for private sector efficiency.

(Chr?tien doubts Ottawa can pay for Romanow recommendations)

I can't wait until the last vestiges of quasi-socialism
break down. Once we get rid of universal health
insurance and privatize everything, we won't have
anything to lord over Amrika. We might have to
actually fix some stuff rather than patching it up
every now and then.
