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.
haha, I work in government, and we've tried to steer people to that direction but politicians feel (they're right) it's a non-starter with the public. Canadians definitely get weird when it comes to health care.
