Let’s do something different today and talk about healthcare and money. As a Canadian, I’m used to thinking that healthcare is this public, free, wonderful thing. It isn’t public; the bulk of it is private. Everything except hospitals is private (The difference between us and say, America, is that we have public insurance, not public health care. Both places are just as expensive. We just pay it in the form of taxes.) Half of this province’s budget is health care. So understandably, the government is always talking about developing “Sustainable Healthcare”.
The problem with that is the system is designed to be expensive. Let me illustrate through example.
