Re: Wanna see how long you wait for health care in the UK and Canada here you go
But on that same vein, our wages are a bit higher... I understand what you are saying... and yes our federal taxes are higher than yours... but alot of that can be attributed to the fact that we have a very large country, and a very small population. We have the most miles of paved road per capita in the world,, that dosent come cheap either....
I am not stupid enough to think that all that wonderful hospital care and doctors come for free,, but it sure helps a person sleep at night if you suddenly need them and maybe you couldnt afford to pay for your insurance,,,, or maybe you missed a payment,, I have heard of people having to claim bankruptcy over a hospital stay,, but not here in Canada,, no matter what you will never pay to use a hospital here.... Even if you happen to live in a province where you have to pay medicare,, and you didnt pay it, they will not charge you (they will come after you for past due medicare though)
