    WIth all the poo that USA gives Canada... I think its more cause there jealous... they never say what makes them poo, or what the problem is. They just give them poo about all the stuff that is actually pretty cool, or a good idea.

    Believe me when I say Canada is not perfect, but compared to other countries this IS the most awesome place to live,and I am extremely proud to say I AM CANADIAN !!!!
    As Far as 1/2 the country being french that is just not true , this country is made up of people who speak many languages, The government is a bilingual one ( French and English only ) and as such you can conduct any federal gov. issues in your language of choice ( as long as it`s french or english )
    And furthermore our national hockey team RULES the planet !!!!

    I am not sure if you did this on purpose or not but that sentence above is chalk full of grammatical errors , the form is wrong and Australia should have a capital "A" and their`s should be theirs
    That`s another thing Canadians are awesome at ....Spell check and the English language !!!

    and Delta,

    I know you are an Aussie and not from Canada...it`s called a COMPARISON. So before you start yelling, "I`m not from Canada and that makes you stupid" keep that in mind.

    Jesus, I always had such respect for Aussieland too...I wasn`t aware they had man-women there too...damn there goes a life time of thinking they were all badasses...thanks Delta, you just ruined years or my childhood by exposing me to YOU.

    Clearly, you haven`t been to the United States.
    I`m in the best part of the country and I`ve been to the best part of Canada. I would beat your ass to be there if I weren`t tied down here. (Almost literally)
    I like New York City and all, but the government here is so fita that the only real left-wingers live in the White House.

    Maybe of "Saskatchewan" is your idea of "the good part of the country" your perspective is excusable.

    Albertans don`t count as Canadians. All a bunch of anti-monarchist republicans.

    They have the same accent as the yanks they spell the same as the yanks the act the same as the yanks and they smell like the yanks.

    They also secretly(maybe no so secret) hate the rest of Canada and would rather be part of the USA.

    Don`t get me started on Quebec.

    To add to this Canadian polarization flame war...heheheh... This strip is referring to western Canada, clearly. Mountains, beaches, good hockey teams and good beer...all western. Sorry but anything East of Canada is a barren wasteland of pretension. I`m looking at you Toronto. Pretentious hipsters.

    "Albertans don`t count as Canadians. All a bunch of anti-monarchist republicans.

    They have the same accent as the yanks they spell the same as the yanks the act the same as the yanks and they smell like the yanks. "

    Last time I checked, living in Alberta did not make me a yank and forget how to spell the way I was taught in school. OH and I know for a fact I do not have a "yank" accent. And no, Alberta does not hate the rest of Canada, nor would we ever want to join the USA. I think we`d rather become our own little separate country before ever joining the states.

    Western Canadians are nothing but the descendants of rejects. If you knew anything about Canadian history you would know that the only reason we have people living in the west is because they did not fit well in normal society. Prisoners,labourers and all around scoundrels is what you`ll find there.

    Your social status in Canada was based on how close you were to either Ottawa or England.

    Why do Americans hate Canada so much anyways? Its not like we did anything horrible or hurtful to them. If you count the Olympics, that`s bull. One of the reasons why we were happy we won is because if the US had won, they would have gone on rubbing it in our faces saying "They beat us at our own game." Which I would consider a sore winner. On top of that, another good reason why Canada is better is because everybody doesn`t HATE Canada.

    Look at me, I`m patchouly. I went to a hospital where they have socialized healthcare and got treated right away, therefore socialism works lol.

    (switching to AnarchistGod) It`s important to understand that all governments have nothing, but a belief. In order for the government to give you something, they first have to take something from someone else, be it through taxation or inflation. How much did you really pay for what you got? How much did some other taxpayer pay?

    The actual cost is irrelevant. What is relevant is that when you have free market capitalism (NOT CORPORATISM) price fall and efficiency increases because you now have an incentive to look for the cheapest price and the provider has a greater incentive to be efficient.

    The UK has longer wait times under the NHS than private. The UK has private, where people can pay (still less than the US) to get their scans just as fast as the US.

    Actually I can!

    Here in Canada (more specifically in the province of Ontario)

    Average wait time in the ER: 11 hours

    Prostate Cancer: 87 days
    Breast Cancer: 35 days
    Angioplasty: 17 days
    MRI Scan: 119 days
    CT Scan: 45 Days

    Sources: www.health.gov.on.ca - wait times.

    The Premier of Nova Scotia went to the USA for Heart Surgery as he didn`t want to wait.

    Sure if you want COSMETIC surgeries like botox, laser eye...stuff that is purely cosmetic.

    Even our walk-in medical clinics are limited in the type of services they can give. It`s sad really.

    I can`t totally knock down our Health System. It has been there in the most pivotal moment and have walked away without foreclosing on anything...actually it didn`t cost me a single dime.

    That`s when you really appreciate it.

    The thing is that even with longer waiting times, the quality of care is generally better in Canada. Like this study says, "Canadian health care has many well-publicized limitations. Nevertheless, it produces health benefits similar, or perhaps superior, to those of the US health system, but at a much lower cost."

    Mortality rates are still lower and life expectancies are higher, so I doubt that people are dropping like flies because they can`t get access to surgery fast enough.

    I`ve noticed something. Conservatives tend to not be able to understand evolution, while liberals tend to not be able to understand economics. Has anyone else noticed that?

    People... It works... Deal with it and STFU. If you don`t want change, go live in a third world country. Times change. Government shifts power around and throws money every which way it decides to. Don`t like it? GTFO...

    You`re doing the same thing that patchouly did, you`re just claiming that it works. It only seems to work because there`s a surplus in the market, if socialism works than why not have the government provide everything for us? Also, the government doesn`t have anything other than a belief. If it gives an X, it had to take an X.

    When you say something like that, what you`re really saying is that government steals resources, and throws resources. The problem is the incentive to be efficient.

    Saying GTFO is the "love it leave it" "argument". It`s not actually an argument because it doesn`t address the content of what is being said. Let me put it another context so you can understand. Here in fakeland, we rape people and it`s legal, don`t like it? Then GTFO!

    Just for Canada`s sake, I`ll put Lighthouse brewery`s Race Rocks. From the home town here on Vancouver Island. It`s a really good amber ale."

    It`s a heavily hopped barleywine - somewhere between 11 and 13% - I can`t recall.

    Universal Health Care is great... Personally, I don`t mind paying the extra bit in taxes for better care of all. Maybe thats just me not being a greedy phucktwit...
    It`s not about you and it`s not about greed, some people would not like to do business with a coercive monopoly(universal healthcare provider). People like me just realize that products and services would be produced more cost-effectively in a free market. This would greatly help society, unlike universal healthcare.

    "The thing is that even with longer waiting times, the quality of care is generally better in Canada. Like this study says, "Canadian health care has many well-publicized limitations. Nevertheless, it produces health benefits similar, or perhaps superior, to those of the US health system, but at a much lower cost."

    WOAH! I have a serious issue about ANY report that compares a Canadian province such as Manitoba (Population: 1.2 million) and the rest of the USA: 307+ million.

    That being said, I do agree with you and add that under certain cases, our socialist Health Care system does have advantages over the private medical system as found in the US.

    My wife had a heart attack 4 years ago at the age of 32. The 1 week she spent in the Cardiac Care Unit would have cost us easily $100K. My tax dollars help save her life.

    That`s ALL that matters.

    Smileyguy, I think we`re pretty much on the same page here. The healthcare system has not been perfect in any country I`ve lived in. "Socialized" health care has some serious issues, but the fact that people can afford quality healthcare is the most important consideration.

    Anyone who is able and wants to would provide healthcare will provide it. People would "regulate" the market by doing business with those who provide a good product or service at a good price. Business that overcharge will go out of business and die out. It`s kind of like natural selection, except it`s called consumer selection.

I dunno) in Oklahoma, Texas, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Libya, Tunisia and Morocco. Now I live in St John`s, Newfoundland, Eastern Canada. And yes, it is the most awesome place I`ve ever been. I haven`t changed my profile as I define myself much more as where I come from, rather than the place I happen to find myself living ATM.

    If you`re talking about a free market, it has, and it`s happening right now (but, not fully). People buy a good service or product at a good price and those business do better and others that overcharge or are ineffective at providing a product or service, die out.

    The main reason why some business in America make much more money than they normally would is because of barriers to entry. A barrier to entry is law that forces business to have a certain standard with their products or services. This was suppose to help people, but what it really did was limit competition, which in turn created monopolies and cartels that could cater to the regulators, rather than the customer. Obviously I don`t have any proof. This is just the logical conclusion that I reached to.

    It`s usually the liberals that have a hard time understanding economics. Liberals, for the most part, believe that the state can do a better job.

    It`s kind of ironic. Liberals bitch about greedy monopolies and at the same time advocate the state, which itself is a monopoly.

    With a regular monopoly, we have the option of doing business with them, so they can`t overcharge that much. The state on the other hand, has a monopoly on currency, so basically it can just take as much money as it wants from the people by just printing it.

    In anarchy, bad business die out and good ones grow. The government is a business that can`t die because of its belief. Do you guys think the government is a good business if its debt is TRILLIONS of "dollars"? I think any other business would have gone out of business before the debt went that high.

    there is no way socialized healthcare is a bad thing. there are private hospitals in canada where you can pay for quicker procedures, otherwise everything is free. canada is less dense, has less crime per capita. on the west coast has almost no french canadians. hockey is the greatest sport in my opinion(go nucks), and don`t say american hockey teams are better because most of them are over 50% canadian players or learned how to play here.and our national sport is lacrosse, not hockey. vancouver was voted 2nd most livable city behind only venice italy. that 50 million lottery is taxed alot less than it would have been in the states. the term american encompasses canada and ever other country in the americas as well, not just the united states OF america. our beer is much better. we don`t have a collective weight problem. oh yes, and weed and downloading music is decriminalized.

    Downloading music without paying is decriminalized in Canada? That`s absolutely retarded. People make their living making music, not to mention all the other people in related fields that depend on those sales.

    And when someone says "American" they mean a citizen of the United States of America. See how the word `America` is in that title?
    If they meant someone in North America, the continent, they would say North American.
    And if they meant someone of North, South, or Central America, they would say "of the Americas", Or maybe the archaic "New World".

    You seem alright at English, so I`m puzzled as to why you`re having trouble understanding this.

    "Free" is the incorrect term. Our healthcare is payed for in part by our tax dollars, hence "Social healthcare" Nothing is free.

    Our lotteries are NOT taxed. What you win, you keep 100%. You get taxed on the capital gains from the INTEREST you earn when you bank or invest it.

    We are Canadians who live on the North American CONTINENT. We`re NOT American. That misconception will get you seriously mawled on July 1st.

    Don`t have a "collective weight problem"? Are you INSANE? Canada is just as bad on this problem as any other country on this planet. Go read the latest on the Statistics Canada site and Ministry of Health.

    I can`t speak for the weed, but downloading commercial media without PAYING and without concent is still illegal in any province.

    As for the hockey and beer, well I didn`t see a CANADIAN TEAM win the Stanley Cup. Beer is beer, to each their own.

    If that’s true then how are you going to stop people from taking more than they give without creating shortages? As for the providers, what incentives are there, that are better than “survival of the fittest”, when you have little to no competition to be efficient?

    I could get cancer repeatedly for the rest of my life, or I could have an organ transplant, or maybe loose a limb or two in an accident. Or maybe all three. I wouldn`t loose my house to pay for it. I wouldn`t have any health insurance premiums to go up. The poor are entitled to the same care as the rich.
    America is the only first world country with such a backwards health system. You must be so proud.

    I`m not Canadian.

    Why do people keep saying Canada has socialized healthcare? We don`t, we`re not communists, lol. It`s called universal healthcare. Plus there are private hospitals if you want to pay for service but doctors, hospitals, etc are free to everyone at anytime and you can always choose/switch family doctors whenever you want.

    I found the pic kinda boring, that`s dry Canadian humour for ya!

    That sucks, because now there`s little to no incentive for the provider to be efficient. Like I said before, nothing is free. In order for the government to give you something, they first have to take something from someone else. How much did your society really pay? (the actual cost is irrelevant) What incentive do you have to look for the cheapest price?

    With the exception of charity, people not paying out of pocket are cribbing society. It`s a shame liberals are unable to comprehend economics.

    Why do people keep saying Canada has socialized healthcare? We don`t, we`re not communists, lol. It`s called universal healthcare.
    Universal healthcare is socialized. If not, then do explain the difference.

    No, you would need a cancer treatment and die on the waiting list.

    "That sucks, because now there`s little to no incentive for the provider to be efficient"

    actually there is a standard, y`know.... they can`t just half-ass it...`s kinda the law. In the past 4 years I`ve had to go to the hospital6 times for various reasons. 2nd year uni I sliced my hand open and didn`t have to deal/worry about filling out anything or waiting x number of hours... just went and got it stitched up...then 2 months later got 2nd degree burns on the same hand and was in and out in under an hour... even last summer when I got my tonsils out I got referred and in the OR in a week
