  1. Yes but how many countries where their health care intentionally causes viral infections to make someone vulnerable to their noxious chemicals so the can commit social engineering i mean crimes against humanity?

  2. Let's see over priced Drugs, Medical equipment, Hospitals. Miss any thing oh over price insurance that does not cover anything but when it does the deductible unaffordable.

  3. The canadian healthcare system is being destroyed by immigration. People immigrate to Canada (or walk in illegally) and they get paid for health care. A lot of the people who come to Canada do not work and have not worked, but leach off the system. Thanks to leftwatism Canada is becoming a shithole.
