Re: Our Medical Experiences in Mexico

The reality of the Canadian health care system is that a bureaucrat, not a doctor will determine what your healthcare needs are.

Friend of mine in Canada and I both injured a knee playing hockey on a Sunday. Monday I scheduled an MRI in the morning and had it read and got checked out by a knee doctor. All was well, just a sprain.

My friend was not so fortunate. He waited six months to get an MRI (guess Canadian medicine is way behind US) and he needed surgery. His bureaucrat determine that he was not a professional athlete so the motherland, oh I mean Canada didn't see the need to fix it. He could just use a cane with a slight limp.

Socialism sees no value in the individual. Unless you are a party member of status. My friend had no political connections to get his "priority" elevated. At least I have the opportunity to change my "priority".
