Does the health system in Canada pay for your tooth care, and what about your eye care as well?
Can you expect the Canadian health care system to pay for a sex change?
How long can you expect to wait in the waiting room to see a doctor in the emergency room?
I am sure if you are a true Canadian, you can answer these questions, can't you?
Now, on the subject of illegals.
What determines whether a person is illegal or not?
How long do illegals have to wait to be deported?
Are they allowed back into Canada, or do they have to wait to come back?
1. I am Canadian. My ancestors go back to the late-early 17th-18th century. But that is of no significance, because if you don't want to believe it, nothing I can do about it;
2. Breast cancer? My brother had brain and lung cancer. It took about 3 days to receive the necessary chemotherapy with surgery a month later, a few days after chemo was over. He died anyhow, no one recovers from lung and brain cancer. My sister-in-law had double breast cancer, was looked after from day 1 of detection, is in remission. Not looking for sympathy here, no way, just illustrating how it goes. Oh, cost : ZERO. There are horror cases where action is not swift enough after detection of ANY illness, System is far from perfect, and needs much tweeting. But doctors, clinics, hospitals, are there for ANY Canadian and no one goes through his/her wallet to locate a Visa card;
3. ONLY the doctor decides for us. Check it out. Whether for a visit, referral to a specialist, drugs and medication, exams, analyses or surgery, and hospital stay, ONLY the attending physicians decide and approve. There is no board, and no one to ask permission from as you have with insurance companies in the U.S. The only exception is drugs, they have to be approved as a whole by the Health board as a matter of policy, not individually. If you feel you are unjustly treated because such and such a drug is not approved for you, you may appeal. But, except for new new drugs, it's rare;
4,5. Tooth and eye care. Dentists and eye care are not covered by our govt plan. They should be. However, all mun, prov and fed civil servants are indeed covered, aas per most companies, premium about $20 per month, coverage is 80% of doctor's fee. It is estimated that 75% of Canadians are covered for the aforementioned;
6. Sex changes are paid for, but they do have to go through a board as we are talking elective surgery here, with psychological ramifications. Even allowed for prisoners which I think is stupid;
7. Wait in emergency room to see a doctor? In Québec,(health plans are provincial in Canada) 15 to 30 hours. Scandalous. In other provinces, average waiting time is 6-10 hours. However, there are private clinics all over that are covered 100% by govt health plan. According to reports, they are not used enough and they could alleviate the pressure on Hospital E.R.s. Not perfect, ER care, but it works nonetheless and don't forget, better to get it free, to be obtainable than not even having the option to wait albeit long because of no health coverage.

ILLEGALS :

a) Determination ? Board of immigration appeals. They decide and decision can be appealed right up to superior court;
b) Any illegal has to merely step on Canadian soil and he is not deportable. Process will take as long as 5 years before deportation order is given. It's crazy, I'm totally against that. Should not take 5 yrs to determine eligibility;
c) In some cases, they can re-apply, yes, specially where humane factors are proven or if repatriation to their home country poses a danger.

Satisfied? Was that quick enough to prove I have not even googled my reply or checked anywhere? I have good knowledge of my country and my counbtry's legislation, as I have of yours.

Our health laws are far from perfect. And do no forget, we are in a tight fiscal situation now, as are you. Dollars are important and the health programme is expensive. No cuts so far, but some beds have been closed. Not good. But Sioux, Canada and the U.S. are members of the OECD. 34 richest countries. All but one, the US, have universal health care plans. Are the other 34 poorer because of those plans? I think not. Where does the U.S. stand as refers to life expectancy out of 34? Childbirth deaths, where does it stand? I won't tell you, don't want to rile you, but look them up. Does perhaps lack of universal health care have anything to do with it? No free preventive medicine,,no ER visits unless danger of death, and even then, you may be ruined for life, unable to purchase expensive drugs. Anyhow, when universal health care was introduced in Canada in 1965, politicians received death threats, doctors rebelled, government was locked in fillibusters, and 2/3 of population was against it. Well, ask the population what it thinks today, in spite of non-perfect health care.

Please pardon the typos in both posts, I did not re-read either.

Despite the fact that Senator Howard's opinion is not controlling, he didn't believe children born in the US of alien parents were subject to a foreign power. Indeed, he believed that such children were born citizens of the United States.
“They became such in virtue of national law, or rather natural law which recognizes persons born within the jurisdiction of every country as being subjects or citizens of that country. Such persons were, therefore, citizens of the United States as were born in the country or were made by naturalization.” Senator Jacob Howard, Cong. Globe 39th Cong., 1st Sess, 2765 (1866).
“A citizen of the United States is held by the courts to be a person who was born within the limits of the United States and subject to their laws.” Senator Jacob Howard, Cong. Globe 39th Cong., 1st Sess, 2765 (1866).
<quoted text>
If Howard's words are not controlling, why do you post them so much?
Howard was correct! Aliens born here are not subject to the jurisdiction of the Constitution.

Jock, why are you lying?

It takes DAYS, sometimes weeks before a determination from a board of doctors is made about your next move, whether you receive surgery or not.

Sex changes are not paid for.

Sometimes people have to wait days, before they can see a doctor in the emergency room, as opposed to several hours here in the USA.

And why are you not complaining about such a crappy healthcare system?

I bet it's because you get it free and anything free is good to a socialist, whiny, poopy diapered, helpless baby such as yourself, even if it's defective.
A socialist is a helpless, baby with a poop filled diaper waiting to be changed by their government parents.

Here in the USA, we love to work for what we have and we have no problem shopping around for the best care.
There is no way in hell Americans will accept your horrific socialized medical system.

There is no determination for illegals!
They are deported right away.
Canadians have an identification card which denotes they are citizens.
Any illegal caught without it, is automatically deported.
They are not allowed back in the country without a citizenship card.
That is the legal way of doing it.
There are many people from India, Africa and Middle Eastern countries that think they can easily gain entrance into the USA by going through Canada, but a monkey wrench is thrown into their plans once they are caught without a citizenship card.

Wow Jock, you claim you know more about the USA than we do.
Well, I just proved that I know more about Canada than you do.

The American healthcare system is the best in the entire world.
It only became apparent to cry babies that it was supposedly bad.

The gubbermint is expected to pay for everything the freeloaders want, but the morons don't understand. It's not free!
Someone pays for it.
Anthing you get from the government is something that someone paid for.
I'd rather pay for my own things, thank you.

Where’s Obama’s Wedding Band? Getting Repaired

Sep 10, 2010 2:55pm
ABC News’ Sunlen Miller reports: If you happen to notice that President Obama is not wearing his wedding band, there’s a simple reason why: it’s getting repaired. For at least two days President Obama’s left hand has been unadorned by his wedding band.

The White House said that beyond the typical cleaning that most rings get, Mr. Obama’s intricate gold ring needed a little repairing. White House aides declined to elaborate on what specifically was wrong with the ring.
