Since my youth I have heard politicians glorify universal health care. They say it’s a system based on Canadian values and part of our Canadian identity.

When you think about our universal health care system do you ever wonder about the fairness of waiting lists, otherwise known as queues? Our politicians claim queues provide Canadians with equal access to health care. Do they really? Remember the recent outcry when hockey players and their families jumped the queue for the H1N1 flu […]

You don’t have to be a brain surgeon to know that a man who has undergone brain surgery needs to remain in hospital for more than two days.
