The Hamilton Public Library was donated by Andrew Carnegie, one of the worst Robber Barons, in 1913. http://historicalhamilton.com/durand/mai... . Hospitals were started mostly by religious orders. Government decisions to fund education were largely driven by the manufacturing industries requiring an educated workforce. Canada is the only country that nominally opposes joint public and private health care. I say nominally because we have joint public and private health care already. Dentistry, drugs, physio, occupational therapy, most optometry, podiatry, audiology and psychology - all major health areas - are largely private.
