A Canadian doctor diagnoses US healthcare

4 August 2009, 2:23 AM

You can read my op-ed in today’s Los Angeles Times, “Canadian doctor diagnoses US healthcare”. It has five lessons for the US from the Canadian system. For further historical and political analysis of the Canadian health system’s achievements and challenges see Completing the Vision: Achieving the Second Stage of Medicare.

You can also find an interview I did with Stuart Varney of the Fox Business Network on July 30th.

Best wishes from Toronto on Simcoe Day, honouring John Graves Simcoe, the first British Governor of Lower Canada — what is now Ontario. Your Canadian factoid for today: Simcoe led the new Colonial Assembly to pass the first anti-slavery legislation in the British Empire in 1793.
