If you get sick and spend a month in the hospital with mutiple treatments and dont have heath insurance... there goes the money for your post secondary education. If I break every bone in my body, get cancer, aids, bang my head and spend 3 years in a coma in the hospital it costs me and my family next to nothing
ye your right buddy canadas heathcare is terrible.
watch the film SiCKO.
wow! that is pretty textbook propoganda.
heres my response: break an arm in canada:
fixed in a day, doesnt cost a thing
break an arm in USA: fixed in a day... months of debt
Get a brain tumour in usa: your alive and kicking but you are covered in debts for ever
same brain tumour in canada: it may be curable with public and cost you next to nothing. if they say no... go to public hospital and you have the same debts as in america.
the point is that depending on the severity of your illness you can be refused public healthcare coverage but that just means your not getting a reduction on the price or time so you go to private and get the normal price.
I see Canada as cold, vast, full of frenchies, lots of horses and Good Weed,
Canadian Beaster is awesome : D
I think maybe Morrocco could be added to that list?? Im not too current on the events in Africa.
I do agree however that the Euros severly screwed that continent when drawing the borders.
On topic: Im not american, but when Americans come to Vancouver, they are always blown away when they see people smoking a joint infront of a Starbucks, The library or at the Art gallery. I have a friend who is a cop in South WA st, and he tells me some pretty hilarious stories about busting kids with drugs. Point Im trying to make is, drugs are looked at by the law much differently up here, in my opinion, maybe not the harder drugs, but Marijuana for sure...
Another thing, Do you americans have "safe injection sites" for heroin addicts? You could maybe do something on that.
