IT’S BEEN A GREAT WEEK for the public health system in Canada. No, really.
On Thursday, the B.C. Supreme Court ruled against a Vancouver clinic trying to offer wealthy patients a fast track to health care.
Defenders of the Canadian system said Day’s philosophy flew in the face of the values the Canadian system was founded upon.
On the same day, B.C. Health Minister Adrian Dix was asked why Canada has done so well compared to the United States in suppressing the spread of COVID-19.
Dix responded that Canada’s public healthcare system plays a big part in that.
