Canada's average wait time for a specialist was 21.2 weeks in 2018. Wait time for an MRI was 11 weeks.Other countries do it and do it well. I'm not saying it will be as good but it will benefit this country by helping everyone out. It'll be good so long as they do a model similar to even that of Canada.
To see an orthopedic surgeon the wait was 41 weeks. Imagine screwing up your ankle and being out of work for 41 weeks before they even get around to doing the surgery.
The increasing idolization of our northern neighbor's health system is ironic, as Canada's single-payer system just experienced its worst year ever.
