Canada has a pretty cool health care system. Japan's health care is ****** up though. Proof that universal health can be done right, and wrong.

Almost. You got the time frame wrong.

Person calls to make appointment:
We can get you in sometime around February.

February:
You have cancer, we start treatment in 1 week.

1 week later:
Your cancer is terminal, if you had started treatment 10 weeks ago you would have had a chance.

I heard stories about people coming across the us boarder to have surgery done because the waiting lists,malpractice, and general incompetence of doctors over there. I guess you get what you pay for..oh wait..Hah.

I've lived in Canada my whole life and have never heard of that. And have never had problems with any doctors.

he started making meth to provide for his family after he dies because the cancer was determined as terminal regardless of treatment that would make him live longer

There should be a way for everyone to have at least some form of healthcare. But don't 						****					 the entire system up for the people that can pay for it by converting to socialized healthcare.

Walter White didn't start cooking meth to pay for his health care. He wanted to pay off his mortgage, cover his kids educations, living costs etc. The total came to $737,000 which I'm sure the Canadian government wouldn't give for you just because you were diagnosed with cancer...

That's not even close to true. Because our health care is "free" (paid for in taxes so people won't notice), people go to the doctor for anything, meaning waiting room times are usually 6 hours. It also means that because doctors don't have competition and get paid regardless, they can be as crappy as they want (I've had many instances of mistreatment or simple refusal of treatment because the doctor "had just met me, how is he supposed to diagnose me?"). Plus, our waiting times are certainly not a week. Especially for something like cancer treatment, waiting times are insane.
My aunt had cancer and had to go to the doctor 4 times before they finally realized it, and by that time it was terminal.
Also, it doesn't cover psychologists, physiotherapy, dentistry, chiropractic, and a lot of other useful things, so we're paying so much in taxes and only getting some of what we really should be getting.
Honestly, I think Canada would be better off with private health care.

Recently Canada has been on the ball with medicines.
**** , they practically found a cure for HIV and Cancer in the past few years.

I don't know what it's like in your country, but it's hard to control cancer here.

Yes, exactly. So if you get cancer, no matter if you're a single mom with two kids who's scapping to get by or mother ******* Canadian Bill Gates, you have access to treatment. It's sad if you don't get cancer, but eh, I don't, for one, love to gamble with my health.

Anyways, I feel like that will start an internet arguement. Feel free to answer me, but I will stop here from now. Enjoy the rest of your day and may the Force be with you.

Have fun dying from the cancer while you're on the waiting list.

I'll just be over here getting immediate treatment through my very nice healthcare plan that I pay for.

In Canada people have to wait a substantial time before they are treated for anything due to their Universal HealthCare. Sure it allows people "free" healthcare, but it hinders in the fact that people can not be treated immediately. And yes, there are reported cases of people dying merely waiting for various treatments. Suck on that commies and socialist!

Give me your source.
I live in Canada and it's not a first come first serve kind of system.
It's a "Holy **** , that's serious. go in"
If you go to a hospital because you have a gun shot wound, you are going to be put ahead of someone that is there because they are sick.
As for treatments such as chemotherapy and such, it's better to have to wait a while than to die because you cannot afford it.
The longest I have ever wait in emerge, was when I fell off a quad and bruised all the muscles from my hip to my right calf, late one saturday afternoon, so peak time for emerge visits. And even then I got x rays done, and I was into a room in about 4 hours, and had a velcro cast and was on my way back home by the 6 hour mark.
That may seem like a lot, but I was one of the lesser injuries, this is during a saturday afternoon-evening, so it's peak time from people doing weekend shenanigans.

In the show he did have health coverage, but he wanted to increase his chances of living by going to an expensive doctor that wasn't on the plan. In Canada they have the same thing, you can go to a private surgeon, skip the waiting list and probably get better service, but it will cost you.

I don't know about the next week part, my grandmother has cancer and it took her a couple months on a waiting list to start receiving treatment and meds. I guess it differs where you live. She lives around Calgary.
