Public Health in Canada a 'Tragic' Experience? - Sally Pipes

Complete video at: Pacific Research Institute CEO Sally Pipes draws from the story of her mother's illness to describe the pitfalls of the Canadian healthcare system. Pipes argues that the average wait time in Canada to see a medical professional is 17.3 weeks, and claims that 30,000 Canadians travel to the US annually to receive medical care. ----- Inundated with medical terminology and ill equipped to navigate the options available, most people probably could use a little health-care-system guidance. With extensive experience in the field and an at-times controversial outlook, Pipes brings her knowledge to the public, breaking down the myths about health care and getting straight to the facts. - Commonwealth Club of California Sally C.
