Please check with folks you might know in Canada.
medical system sucks, medical system is controlled by govt so no pvt hospital(unlike USA/India), medicare is free from top level for every one but then you pay huge tax which will kill you.
you have no choice but to wait in queue only life threatning people can see doc in 2-4 hour.

there is more possibility that you can die by viral fever then you can die by bomb explosion in Iraq.

people died because of phnumonia/ some normal diseases, while waiting for doc, they will not even give you antiboitic till you about to die and lucky enough to see the doc.

it's just like if delhi have AIIMS and you have to go there only, you don't have to pay for doc but looooooooooong queue.

and You have to pay for drugs which is expensive any way.
