Sadly, the made-up horror stories about Canada's system (people there are still shocked to hear you get to pick your own doctor, etc, unlike many of us here)..so no matter who wins in Nov, in 2012 we'll (probably) still lack what every other industrialized country has, a public nonprofit 'medicare for all' which is what europe, japan, australia, etc, not just "those silly canadians" but everyone else has.

Just one question, if Canadian healthcare is so fantastic, why do so many Canadians come to the US for heathcare?
Oh, and please do not tell me how this is all a silly figment of a writer's imagination. I've been in the hospitals where they are showing up.
