I have come across one site in Canada that is asking for users of the system to record these stories for submission to the federal and provincial governments.Medicarestories is also mentioned at right-wing blogs Canada Turns Left and Politiks Can and at Digg.com. Each time as a fortuitous discovery by the poster, implied to be someone else's site and recommended as a way for medicare users to share their experiences.
All of these sources seem to have one thing in common.
Kelly T. Konechny.
He's the only name, contact or affiliation on the medicarestories site itself, the helpful poster sharing his discovery on blogs Canada and on both right wing blogs Canada Turns Left and Politiks Can, both seemingly run by the same person, an e-mail free personage going by the initials KTK or SZM on older pages - which also happens to be the name of the design company listed on medicarestories.com. Update: Just noticed that the listed e-mail for Kelly T. Konechny at Canada blogspot is email@example.com. Politiks Can is on the blogging dippers ring.
Now, I'm certainly not ascribing a motive or specific ideological approach to the medicarestories.com site. But considering Canadian conservative figures like Preston Manning have called for a stealth campaign of high-lighting 'medicare horror stories' in an attempt to wean Canadians away from their affection for the Public System - any project such as this should perhaps be a bit more open about it's agenda and backers.
