The Canadian single payer health care system has long been cited as a model by progressives here in Vermont. Now that Vermont is on the verge of enacting its own single payer system, perhaps we should more closely examine this so-called model. Pro freedom activists are in the process of screening the movie Sick and Sicker around the state in an effort to promote just such an examination. Interestingly enough, the efforts to examine the Canadian model is being aided by this report on a Canadian TV station.
With the possibility of such a system coming to Vermont, perhaps more Vermonters may want to join in on the examination of the so-called Canadian model.
