Liberals moving to Canada to live the perceived liberal Utopia there are discovering that their ideas don’t work. They are finding that “free” health care is a great benefit when you are healthy, but if you are sick waiting lists are quite long.

Niren, who has lived in both the US and Canada, voiced similar concerns. He said his own mother, who needs a hip replacement, had been on a waitlist for 18 months. “There are people who have to fly to other countries — including the United States — to get cancer treatment because it takes too long,” he said. “In the US, you can get a specialist appointment in two days.”

Niren also said Canadians paid elevated taxes to support such a comprehensive healthcare system.

“People call it free healthcare — it’s not free,” he said. “It’s very expensive because you’re paying through the taxes.”

Wait, you are telling me that the Doctors and Nurses in Canada don’t work for free? WTH?

He added that there was still an opioid crisis in British Columbia, but it wasn’t as striking as it is in Portland. Ouellet said that in the three years he’d lived in British Columbia, he’d seen one syringe on the ground, compared with Portland, where he saw dozens a day.

That’s because you live in leftist shitholes. I have NEVER seen a syringe on the ground. That’s what you get for living in Portland.

“When you’re out in public, and you hear a noise, no one runs, no one checks over their shoulder, no one thinks that it could possibly be gun violence.”

The reality is that, outside of a few leftist shithole cities, so called “gun violence” is as rare in the US as it is in Canada. The simple fact is that Canada has a population density that is much lower than in the US, and when you compare cities of equal density, you get similar crime rates. Couple that with the fact that blacks (the demographic most likely to participate in violent crime) only make up 4.9% of Canada’s population, and the result is low crime.

Still, lefties- GTFO

Ya I’m Canadian. $80000 equates to just over $56000 after taxes. Then carbon tax gst tax and on and on. But please keep your liberal fucktards down there. We have enough of them assholes to deal with up here.

I hear guns going off frequently. At least once or twice a week. Occasionally it’s my family making the noise. Often it’s distant neighbors out hunting, target practicing, putting down a sick or injured animal, etc… None of us flinch or check over our shoulder. Like you said, it matters if you live in a Democrat shithole or not.

The majority of 36 million Canadians live within 100 miles of the US border, and clustered in a few metropolitan areas.
The plains providences are very sparsely populated.

Ha. Well, the numbnuts complaining about the cost and level of service of the Canadian health care system can look forward to the same shitty service and long wait times ruining care here too, given the trajectory we’re on. So, the good news is that once our system is made as shitty as theirs, we won’t need to worry about outsiders coming here to get faster/better service than they could get in their own country. And that assumes a full on collapse of the system doesn’t occur before the systems equalize in how lousy they are.

Clearly, the system as presently constituted cannot continue indefinitely. The exponential cost increases YOY are certain to detonate the whole thing before too much longer. People cannot continue to afford this shit, and when adding the cost of everything else having gone up so much is going to further shorten the time to detonation. And I say good, it’s about damn time. We’ve been getting fucked by this asset stripping scheme for decades, and obammycare was a stop gap to keep it solvent a bit longer, while screwing us all to the wall in the process.

America is largely a fat, sick population now. A lot of people need to figure out that the pill pushing pimps that are keeping them alive (well, sort of, many aren’t really living, they are so miserable) will not continue to do so indefinitely. When the money runs out (and with it the paychecks of the practitioners) that “care” will no longer be available. Then scores of people are as good as dead, as they cannot survive in their current poor health without it (most notably prescriptions). I’m certain that is part of the plan to reduce population, too.

I used to date an RN who worked for a company that sold “ pain pumps”. They had a number of patients come over from canada to Michigan for the surgery to get it installed. Not sure but I dont think Canadian health care paid for it.

    I transported a patient to the hospital that came to my city for health care. Yes, Canada probably did pay for it. She was lucky enough to have a husband that was rich enough to bring her to the sunbelt in winter. Her waiting time in Canaduh for her particular elective surgery was measured in months…at that time approximately 20.

I had a colleague at the MOD who suffered a heart attack while jogging. He had to wait almost 10 months before he could get a stint He asked me what would happen in the State. I said it would have been done in 3-4 days after he entered the ER.
He said but at least his health care was free. I laughed which pissed him off. I said check your tax rate. My employer pays most of my health care cost and I get a choice in coverage plans.
He survived the ordeal in spite of free Canadian healthcare.

    Our standard is a patient presenting with a heart attack gets sent to the catheterization lab to receive a stent within 60 minutes of arrival to the ED.

    > check your tax rate. My employer pays most of my health care cost

    Yeah…that’s the bad part right now. I run a small business. It will cost ~$1k per employee to provide good health insurance. And by “good”, I mean the employee will still be on the hook for the first few thousand dollars of any medical expense during a calendar year….so basically I would be paying ~$12k/employee/year in order to give them the *privilege* of paying something like $6k out-of-pocket for healthcare, and *then* the insurance would kick in.

    I miss the days back before 2007 where I could ensure my entire family of 7 for about $450/mo and the most I’d ever spend is about a $7-15 copay and maybe $20 on some drug from a pharmacist.
