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~!

Agree. So sick of seeing people say socialized healthcare is going to kill us all like it does all the other countries who practice it.

those other countries are old countries and they are feeling the affects of a world wide economic collapse. it is NOT because of healthcare. in fact, i can bet you my bottom dollar, that when the stocks hit rock bottom, gov't and banks will rush to buy them up at a low price, then re-inflate the market, and make a lot of $ off the whole "collapse" many economic collapses over history have been engineered.

Honestly, my husband and I have looked into moving there. Not for a stupid reason like the election, but because we are interested in a change of culture and a change of area. The healthcare system plays into why a tiny bit, but not a whole lot. Overall, Canada seems like an amazing place.

my bff is from toronto (married a man in alabama) and i had a friend who recently went to sasketchewan (sp) for canadian army training. I really wanted to move to toronto but found out that to get the healthcare, i'd have to be a citizen and have to live in canada as a resident for 7yrs before qualifying for citizenship. But i love canada. I really do. One day i'll move to ontario.
