Had an opportunity to watch The Passionate Eye documentary "Medicare Schmedicare" last night.
Every Canadian, old or young, must watch this film.
This film obliterates Canadian health care mythology and sheds light on how our nascent private health system is helping Canadians.
Is one tier Medicare a myth? Have we been saluting its founder, the “Greatest Canadian” Tommy Douglas as an emperor who really has no clothes? As the country heads toward an election in which our health care system promises to be an emotional issue, Medicare Schmedicare takes the highly unorthodox (ed: maybe to some!) stance that two tier health care is already here and thriving. Premiering on The Passionate Eye on CBC Thursday, Dec. 8 at 9 pm, Medicare Schmedicare offers viewers an inside look at private health care clinics across Canada - where $1,250 can get you immediate access to a doctor.
Watch it. Tell your friends.
