The Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), a national statistical agency projects total health spending to hit $148-billion this year. This is an increase of $8-billion over last year.
Yet wait times persist, doctor shortages continue and medical equipment is still scare in hospitals.
Yet the system runneth over with bureaucrats and bloated ministries. The state positions itself as the champion of health care and repeatedly states that only the government can effectively manage and deliver services.
What a crock of bull plop. Health care in Canada continues to be a billion-dollar black hole where all the extra billions fail to improve the delivery of services.
Demand Health Care Reform!
