Canada Still Coming Up Triple Zeros


In a good way.....

As was explained by citizen Terry Champion in a fantastic letter to the Edmonton Journal a couple of days ago:

"Statistics for 2009 compiled by Harvard Medical School and the U.S. Census Bureau show that, in the insurance-dominated U.S. healthcare system, 45,000 Americans died because they had no health insurance; 922,819 Americans went bankrupt because of medical expenses; 50,700,000 Americans have no health insurance.

The comparable figures from the Canadian health-care system are zero, zero and zero..."


Put another way given that we are now more than 10 years in....

Almost half a million Americans have been killed by the lack of universal healthcare since the tragedy of 9/11.

And, just in case you want to have a look at it, you can get to the original HMS study by following the links from here.
