    I have never said anything dishonest, and you have not challenged anything I have said, so why are you challenging my intellectual honesty?  I agree with you that the US system is horrible.

    "Personal agenda"?  I have none, nor have you even suggested one, yet you accuse me of a personal agenda.   I am sorry if I disagree with you on this issue - that doesn't give me a "personal agenda"

    "Our healthcare is poor?"  I will remind you that I am a Canadian, and poor is of course relative.  If you define your system against the US system, then yeah, it's great.  Unfortunately, there is a big world out there, and against the rest of them, Canada is mediocre.

    You even admit that "the funding sucks".  Well, the funding is a part of the system - you have to deliver the service, and that requires revenue.  For too long Canada has thought that it could cut taxes instead of fixing social services.  The service has suffered as a result.

    It is easy to say "our system is good, it just needs better funding" - well get the better funding before you talk about how great Canada's health care is.  As it is the Canadian comparison is not nearly as good as it could be.

      Have you stated that Canada's healthcare is poor?

      Even in your subject lines?

      You are still missing the point. Quite intentionally I think. Obtuse and dishonest.

      We have been talking about the system, and delivery. Right? Well, the rest of us have. Not you of course.
