The Erosion of National Policies in Canada: Part 1 Health Care

The Canadian Health Care System is being slowly dismantled in BC and in Quebec and elsewhere in Canada. Although Canadian citizens have access to OHIP the services covered are being eroded a little bit at a time. 

In Saskatchewan walk in clinics for so called orphaned patients abound. It would seem that the physicians working in these clinics get paid on a per patient basis. The more patients a doctor "sees" the more money the doctor gets. Patients are lined up and file in and out ,as if on an assembly line. Clinics here in Saskatchewan are notorious for quick-fix treatments.
