Millions would pay for even PREMIUM private healthcare services

A Decima poll released today suggests that millions of Canadians would buy what was described earlier this summer in the liberal media as “Cadillac” healthcare service that would cater only to “the rich”. 

The particular service is not named in the poll but I’m assuming it refers to the service offered by the heroic entrepreneurs at Copeman Healthcare Centre, headed by Don Copeman, who announced earlier this summer plans for a service charging precisely the amounts mentioned right in the poll(!). 

I fully expect that great Canadian entrepreneurial ground-breakers like Don Copeman, along with other like-minded doctors such as the good Dr. Brian Day of the Cambie Surgery Center (who said these un-liberal words: “You cannot constitutionally outlaw a citizen’s right to spend their own money to improve their health care based on the promise that you’re going to deliver it, and then not deliver it”), will soon be issued honorary doctorates at a huge awards ceremony at the University of Western Ontario, followed by special awards from the Couchiching Institute.

For the convenience of those institutions, the Copeman Healthcare Centre web site is and the Cambie Surgery Centre is

I would suggest everyone bookmark their URLs and, visit their sites, and start making plans to get actual healthcare in your lifetime.  Vote out all of the liberals and radical leftists who run nearly all our governments for even faster and better health care service for yourself and your family. 

The Copeman services for which it charges are not government-insured, while the ones that are insured will be billed to the Medical Services Plan.

Millions of Canadians were willing to consider spending thousands of dollars to join a private health service to gain access to faster medical care, suggests a Decima Research poll released Thursday.

Decima asked respondents how likely they would be to subscribe to a service that charged $2,300 a year, with a $1,700 initiation fee, to screen for early signs of disease and manage chronic problems such as diabetes and pain.

“In terms of the size of the market, Decima found there are more than five million Canadians who say they would be likely to subscribe to the service,” the company said in a news release.

Twenty eight (28) countries in the world have universal-access healthcare like Canada, only every country does it better than Canada because they allow private enterprise to run it or at least participate in it to a large extent.  Canada spends the most—or wastes the most—on healthcare of any country in the 28 that offer universal access healthcare. 

“These numbers are compelling evidence there is a broad market for private health care service in the country,’’ Decima’s Bruce Anderson said.

“While Canadians have long said they want the public system protected and well funded, they are clearly willing to consider some of the kinds of options that have historically been criticized as a threat to the public system,’’ Anderson said.

Ujjal DosanjhAnd while the Decima spokesman’s comments are ominous sounding, the fact is—and intelligent people know this—that private enterprise could save Canada’s universal-access system, and change it from the current North Korean-style system favored by the liberal-left in this country—particularly our minister of North Korean-style healthcare Ujjal Dosanjh, who sounds very much like a communist to me—into a workable largely private enterprise-based system with universal access.

But the liberal-left is against this.

The liberal-left, especially our minister of North Korean-style healthcare Ujjal Dosanjh (communist?), prefer to mendaciously warn that allowing private enterprise into Canada—almost like non-communist countries do—would turn our system into “an American style system” and only “rich people” will get health care—the rest will have to sell their homes, go broke, and very likely die on the streets—“and the Conservative Party favors that”, you see. 

Ujjal Dosanjh was the one who said that here in Canada, we do not need private enterprise.  Again, we do not need private enterprise.  He said, “If there is a danger to our health-care system in this country, it is the euphemism of flexibility for the provinces (and) the market reforms.”

That’s a euphemism for communism.
