    The Canadian system started in 1966 with the passage of the Medical Care Act under the Pearson government, and both Canadian and US doctors were bitterly opposed to this trend. The Canadian doctors "lost", and the American doctors (the AMA) "won" -- which is why the US now has the worst medical system of all developed countries. It was, originally, the greed of doctors.

    Now the the greed of doctors has been overtaken by the even greater greed of insurance companies and Big Pharma, we tend to forget the history.
