People Who Lack Critical Thinking Skills

A little education about Canada.

Canada's national health insurance program, often referred to as "Medicare", is designed to ensure that all residents have reasonable access to medically necessary hospital and physician services, on a prepaid basis. Instead of having a single national plan, we have a national program that is composed of 13 interlocking provincial and territorial health insurance plans, all of which share certain common features and basic standards of coverage. Framed by the Canada Health Act, the principles governing our health care system are symbols of the underlying Canadian values of equity and solidarity. 
... the system provides access to universal, comprehensive coverage for medically necessary hospital and physician services.
The federal government provides funding to the provinces and territories for health care services through fiscal transfers.
