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.

sighhhh, I don't feel like explaining it. So I'll leave you with this. AMERICA IS THE ONLY SUPER POWER IN THE WORLD. CANADA WAS ONCE RULED BY THE FRENCH SO STFU. YOU'RE OUR HAT. With that said, thumb me down. I don't care.

Hahahaha, I know you're trolling, it's pretty obvious, but the US only exists in the firstp lace because the French saved our asses.

That's cool. We burned down the White House in the war of 1812.

Canada, bitch.
User avatar #207 to #202 - Crusader (12/20/2012) [-]
Whoa whoa whoa
Back your **** up
They burnt down York first
Not to mention it was Canadian Soldiers under British generals.

if you really want to hurt them, remind them how much damage Canadians did in the first and second world wars before the Americans decided to join.
#210 to #207 - douchec (12/20/2012) [-]
lol. We ****** the Brits up. Besides saying Canada burned down all that **** when we were barely a country is SOOOOO cool. Oh hey, nice space program btw.

What's that? I can't hear you over the sound of low taxes, a higher currency, and NASA. That and 100% occupation of the country. I completely forgot! more than half of your stupid ******* country is trees...
User avatar #220 to #218 - Crusader (12/20/2012) [-]
Canadian dollar is worth 1.01 american dollars
Our currency is higher.
Our taxes may be higher, but that gives us our universal healthcare.
So, yeah.
#223 to #220 - douchec (12/20/2012) [-]
hahaha ohhhh **** . 1 penny. I guess we could afford that considering our taxes aren't ************ us. Isn't yalls minimum wage really high too? I love yalls inflation rate! Hey, don't worry when yall actually start doing **** that's relevant to the rest of the world and ultimately fail, Big Brother America will be here to bail you ************* out. It's funny though. I've already won this argument. I'm American, we've done more for the world then you're piss ass country could ever hope to do.
User avatar #224 to #223 - Crusader (12/20/2012) [-]
Given the publics' reaction to our comments, and that this is an argument of opinion, I think I win.
#225 to #224 - douchec (12/20/2012) [-]
Oh why? because I got a few red thumb and you received COPIOUS amounts of green thumbs? congrats bro! Honestly though, my country is the youngest and is considered the "World Police." I mean there's so much that could've been elaborated on, but hey...why embarrass you and your excuse of a country? I mean after all, the French ruled you guys.....oh and space program.
#226 to #225 - Crusader (12/20/2012) [-]
Oh, look at that.
France ruled you guys too.
Oh yeah, if it weren't for France, you never would have won the revolution.
#227 to #226 - douchec (12/20/2012) [-]
I don't know where you're getting the "without the french you wouldn't have won the revolution thing," probably from the Canadian education system. Regardless, that's false. We kicked their asses to mid-America and after we slaughtered the Brits, we bought that land from the French. It's funny because you guys never fought them. The wealthy French got tired of the **** ass land and left the poor peasant ***** to die. These poor peasant ***** became Canadians. You don't know much about history, do you? I'm gonna get red-thumbed because I'm expressing all of this in an arrogant manner. Not because my arguments suck. heyyyyy pssssttttt...NASA

"French involvement proved decisive[10] yet expensive, ruining France's economy and driving the country into massive debt.[11] A French naval victory just outside Chesapeake Bay led to a siege by combined French and Continental armies that forced a second British army to surrender at Yorktown, Virginia in 1781. Fighting continued throughout 1782, while peace negotiations began.
In 1783, the Treaty of Paris ended the war and recognized the sovereignty of the United States over the territory bounded roughly by what is now Canada to the north, Florida to the south, and the Mississippi River to the west.[12][13] A wider international peace was agreed, in which several territories were exchanged."

"From 1776 France had informally been involved in the American Revolutionary War, with French admiral Latouche Tréville having provided supplies, ammunition and guns from France to the United States after Thomas Jefferson had encouraged a French alliance, and guns such as de Valliere type were used, playing an important role in such battles as the Battle of Saratoga.[65] George Washington wrote about the French supplies and guns in a letter to General Heath on May 2, 1777. After learning of the American victory at Saratoga, France signed the Treaty of Alliance with the United States on February 6, 1778, formalizing the Franco-American alliance negotiated by Benjamin Franklin."

"While French financial assistance to the American war effort was already of critical importance, French military aid to the Americans would not show positive results until the arrival in July 1780 of a large force of soldiers led by the Comte de Rochambeau."

Not to mention that France hosted the treaty negotiations.
Basically meaning that even when they didn't support you guys with soldiers, they supported you with money.
You guys would not have won the war, mainly because you didn't have the money and armaments to keep up the war.

lol. I'm glad youre doing research. what do you expect to gain my winning this "argument?" everyone knows America is the greatest country on the planet. I'm really curious where you got that from. We purchased the Louisiana area from them when they were almost broke. We also kicked their asses so it's okay. Like a bully getting lunch money from nerds. They just left their **** people in Canada and thus, CANADIANS!

nice. in the year 1812. practically yesterday. It would be ******* HILARIOUS to see Canada attack the USA. We have 10 times as many people and an army that actually does **** .

hahahahahahaha wrong. Our trading with Canada is hardly influential at all. Sure it would cause a slight crash here. But that's because of exports on our part. You guys dont export **** . If America stopped buying **** from everywhere for a day, then the world's ****** . And what other superpowers? Not Canada for sure. The only other country that comes close would be China.
#214 to #203 - anon (12/20/2012) [-]
You guys are owned by China. All your arguments are invalid.
#216 to #214 - douchec (12/20/2012) [-]
We own China and they own us. If we were really "owned" by China they would come in and just stomp our **** out. Of course I wouldnt expect dumbass Canadians to know that.

I've never eaten red meat in my life, nor am I a fat, white slob like most of you narrow minded bafoons believe. I'm glad I live in a country that has essentially created and re-created fast food. The same fatty substance that could very well feed the world. Besides, what has any other country ever done, I mean....really?
User avatar #177 to #171 - theimmortalwolfman (12/20/2012) [-]
Where are you getting this from? I'm Canadian, and I barely wait at all when I go in, even for a checkup.
#182 to #177 - anon (12/20/2012) [-]
Think about it...it depends on where you go and at what time. Sometimes in the US of A you have to wait awhile, and sometimes not.Not all hospitals in a country have the same number of patients at a given time.
User avatar #187 to #182 - Crusader (12/20/2012) [-]
Think about it... In the USA you have to pay for everything.
#179 to #177 - douchec (12/20/2012) [-]
Not check ups bro! I'm talking about more important things, such as chemo, organ transplants, and the such.
User avatar #191 to #179 - theimmortalwolfman (12/20/2012) [-]
Well I wouldn't know about transplants or chemo, but I got my surgery rather quickly as well. Perhaps we can agree with the Anon above, it just depends on what area you're in regardless of whether you live in Canada or the US.
User avatar #186 to #179 - Crusader (12/20/2012) [-]
Organ transplant wait times are long anywhere, I would rather wait a while, knowing that my family would not be bankrupt because of it, than be on a list and constantly be pushed back because rich people are buying it all.
