    The thing that disturbs me is that it takes a *male* calling them out to give the claim credibility. Women have noted this type of behavior/acceptance/blame for years. They were dismissed. But...

    I disagree with you assertion about why more options were available. More options were available because the market was less restricted. That naturally leads to more opportunity for people to select...

    I believe the point is everyone has insurance (if they stay in Canada). Access to care is another issue and not everyone agrees.
