It's become part of Canadian mythology, which is dangerous, because when things change, people will be unable or unwilling to look at alternatives.
No doubt, health care is a sacred thing to many Canadians - a sense of pride and many (most?) get pretty irrational about it. Changes are coming in the near future to our health care system and I suspect you are right - it won't go over well with the population, but there's no choice as health care costs are rising too fast to be sustainable in the current environment.
