4. The Canada Health Act says otherwise.

If they move to a private, for profit system, Ottawa can yank federal health care transfer payments.

7. They may be willing to take that, and Alberta is pretty far-right as Canada goes

Most of the health care system is paid for by the provinces as it is; Federal spending in Canada on health care is actually lower per capita than in the US.

8. Yeah, Alberta has taken the place of Quebec as the most troublesome province.

Our federal spending on health care in the US is higher due to immensely inefficient private, for profit bureaucracy.

10. Come to American where you can experience

first hand our inefficient and inequitable private health insurance system. We don't really have health care here, just insurance that may or may not cover what ails you.
