Ted, rather than get bogged down in issues like US medicaid, emergency room treatment for the poor, etc, I am going to propose something radical, more taxes.

If Canadians WANT more health care and we are not allowed to buy it on the open market, governments should do what is responsible and double or triple the health care premium Ontario now has.

By doing this, they will be able to provide more health care services, while spreading the cost equitably to all who use the system. People will bitch and moan about the taxes, but nothing comes for free, including health care.

I prefer the pay per use of the free market, but if the only alternative is to jack up taxes, then just do it until we have so much health care investment, we'll all have our own MRI.

Either way, lets just get it over with and stop whining about shortages all the time.
