ok enough of this, obviously a few things need to be cleared up here.....
was just in the post about the lady who's son was denied care due to no insurance, and a woman was saying that in canada, we pay through our noses in taxes on everything, beer is SO expensive ( like it being cheap would be a GOOD thing?ppffft)
blah blah blah.
OUR TAXES ARE NOT THE ONLY SOURCE OFREVENUE THAT PAY FOR OUR HEALTHCARE.
so stop. just stop. you don't live here, so stfu. you don't know.
i live in saskatchewan. we have this wonderful thing called "crown corporations" these are; SaskPower, SaskEnergy, SaskTel, SaskWater.
we ALSO have potash mines, oil, and other exports which our PROVINCE owns.
and a good percentage of the profits made from these companies goes BACK INTO OUR PROVINCE to cover stuff like healthcare, education, highways, infrastructure, ect.
crown potash corp this year alone contributed 8 BILLION to our province.
do we pay taxes? of fucking course we do. about the same as you, in fact. is cost of living a bit higher? YES but the lowest min wage in canada is 10/hr.
so seriously, stop bashing our healthcare! you have no clue what you are talking about~!
