'Canada's Medicare System Is Completely Sustainable' : REPORT

Canada's publicly funded health care system has many enemies. Those who want to turn health care over to the corporate 'for profit' sector use many arguments to try and convince Canadians that the current system is not sustainable.

Those who champion the public system have new ammunition to deal with the 'free market' detractors. A comprehensive report entitled, How Sustainable is Medicare?, released Thursday by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives argues that Canada's Medicare system is completely sustainable.

The key argument used by those who oppose the public system is that our aging baby boom population will 'bankrupt' the system. 'Not so', says the policy paper authored by the CCPA.


Hopefully this will be read in the U.S. as well.

This is off topic Leftdog but I had to bring it up.

according to a poll the NDP are on there way to victory in the Montreal seat of Outremont. Good for NDP!! It shows how weak the Liberals are under Stephane Dion. That being said as you know I do not support partys on the left but anything that makes Dion look bad is good.
