No longer defining us as a nation:
Canadians engorged themselves on fictitious notions of Americans having to produce a credit card for an ambulance to pick them up, even in emergency cases. (This was nonsense, of course.) Because Canada’s health care system was based on egalitarian universality, we proclaimed our health care system to be the best in the world, and a good reason to soldier on as an independent country and not fold into the rich and omnipotent American colossus.
The Canadian health care system is indeed better for the bottom 30% of people on the income scale than that of the United States. But it is inferior for the more prosperous 70%. It is far from the best in the world, and we have much better reasons to maintain our nationality.
