Things like people over the age of 65 can't get knee replacement surgery might sound evil, but it is coming because we can't afford the costs - no choice
The good news - they can always go to the States and pay to get a new knee
Sure thats some of the cost however the bigger issue is the so called new canadians that abuse the system not all but a fair amount do.It could get worse the toronto health board is pushing ontario to drop the 3 month wait for new canadians so new canadians soon as they come get full medical care this will cost us millions of dollars if it happens.
