    SASKATOON — The incoming president of the Canadian Medical Association says this country's health-care system is sick and doctors need to develop a plan to cure it.

    Dr. Anne Doig says patients are getting less than optimal care and she adds that physicians from across the country - who will gather in Saskatoon on Sunday for their annual meeting - recognize that changes must be made.

    "We all agree that the system is imploding, we all agree that things are more precarious than perhaps Canadians realize," Doing said in an interview with The Canadian Press.

    "We know that there must be change," she said. "We're all running flat out, we're all just trying to stay ahead of the immediate day-to-day demands."

    The bullshit left... I can't stand people that continually bounce their head off the wall and want me to join them...

    Sooooo.. they will announce pretty soon that "Obama and Canadians want health care change...."

    Maybe we can trade the good doctor for Obama.

    We need an honest doctor willing to speak up...and they apparently need some "change".
  4. This is another lie of the left being exposed as such.
  5. Given that

    a) a public option was as much as was ever on the table, which was already far less in terms of gov involvement than Canada, and
    b) even this is now being ceded, it would appear,

    what, exactly, is the relevance to what is actually being proposed here in the US?
    Obviously, none.
    If the public option does come off the table, even comparisons to Medicare and its operation would be invalid.
    The co-ops now being proposed are roughly analogous to credit unions in the financial arena. Are you guys going to seriously propose that this, too, is comparable to Canada?
