33. Bunch of old canards in your post...
I too am subject to using an insurance provider, but there are usual multiple providers in an area. My particular insurance requires me to pay 20% extra if I go outside the provider network, but I am welcome to do so.

How many Canadians do you know? I used to work for a company where a little less than half our workforce was Canadian. Its neither all good or all bad.

Wiki has condensed the information in those links a little better. You may want to continue reading up.

Of particular interest. "A March 2, 2004, article in the Canadian Medical Association Journal stated, "Saskatchewan is under fire for having the longest waiting time in the country for a diagnostic MRIa whopping 22 months." <25> and "The New York Times quoted Dr. Brian Day as saying, "This is a country in which dogs can get a hip replacement in under a week and in which humans can wait two to three years."<26>"
