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