It's become part of Canadian mythology, which is dangerous, because when things change, people will be unable or unwilling to look at alternatives.
I agree that we need to get over ourselves and realize that our healthcare system is not great in comparison to other non-American first world countries. However, DesIraes' policy change is just dumb.
Canada would benefit from moving to a semi-private system like in Germany. Basic healthcare will remain a right for every citizen, but if you can afford it, you can buy your own care. Once we get over the blasphemous nature of a multi-tiered system, we will realize that it actually improves the lowest level of care by lessening the burden upon it.
