Canadian Health Care Costs Money — Que?

Wasn’t this shit supposed to be free?

THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL – The federal government may have the final say on whether Quebec can go ahead with plans to charge taxpayers for using its health-care system.

In a historic budget tabled Tuesday, the province said it was considering implementing a $25 deductible for each visit to the doctor.

It claims the deductible is in line with the Canada Health Act because it would not hinder accessibility.

But health-care expert Antonia Maioni says Quebec’s proposal may go against the spirit of the law.

She says federal Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq is the only person with the authority to declare such deductibles illegal.

Quebec Premier Jean Charest says his government would have to finalize details of the plan before seeing if it would pass a legal test.

I have no clue what’s going on. Besides it’s Quebec. They speak French. Yeah.
