Question, Where are all the health care demonstrations and
riots in other countries? It seems to me that if Canada and other countries were in such a mess and everyone was dieing waiting to have operations approved by bureaucrats they would be a least a little upset. Why aren't those poor unfortunate Canadians streaming across the border to take advantage of our wonderful health-care system?

has a cousin that has a friend that had to come to the US for treatment because they had a 30 year waiting list in Canada. Where is the outrage? If I was a Canadian I would be marching on the capital with a torch and a pitch fork.

3. True, and you just know if there was a problem in France with their healthcare ...
... they'd be rioting.

Those French really know how to protest.

5. Those French go on strike if
they get a layoff or are forced to work an overtime shift. Same thing goes for Italy they don't take any crap either.
