Where Are Your Health-Care Dollars Going?
It's been reported that Canada spends the fourth most per capita on health care of all of the industrialized countries in the world, behind the United States (an odd country that when it comes to health care), Netherlands and Switzerland. Ontario spends about the national average, so we clearly do spend a lot on health care.
Yet, despite all that money being spent, Canada's health-care system currently ranks 30th in the world, according to the World Health Organization and last amongst all OECD countries in terms of wait times. Clearly, all Canadians, not just Ontario residents, should expect more from their health-care system.
