Double Speak from Dr Day

The Tyee has an excellent piece about what the new anti-medicare head of the CMA says to the Canadian press and public - and what he says behind closed doors to American private health insurance executives slavering to bite into the Canadian market.
Canadians should not be fooled by Day's double-speak. He is bringing the U.S. model of investor-owned health care to Canada, while convincing people that this is the only way to remedy wait times and other problems in our health care system. Every informed health care analyst has reached the opposite conclusion: we have some serious problems in Canada with our health care system but every one of these problems would be aggravated rather than cured if we were to move towards an American for-profit system of health care.
