This documentary aired July of 2012 telling the story of the implementation of Medicare in Saskatchewan in the early 60's and then it became universal across Canada. No cost to the people, no second rate "County" or VFW hospitals. Anyone in Canada with a For Sale sign on their house means they are MOVING, not selling to pay a doctor of hospital bill. We do not bankrupt our citizens in the name of HEALTH. NOTE: In 1979 I was a passenger in a wreck, broke my neck and spent 8 months in the hospital. At the time they sent us annual statements [not invoices] and mine read $80,000. No cost to me.33 plus years on, I receive any care I need whenever I need it even though I'm disabled. NO Death Panels!
