Y'all are a bunch of wankers!

canadian healthcare

This guy worked for Sears 35 years. The pension fund he paid into didn't exist or was raided, so now he's 72 and it's being cut and he won't have health care and he has a medical condition.

So, I guess Canada doesn't have a public health care system and they don't have Medicare for retirees. They have a worse system than the US.

It's interesting because of all the people constantly saying Canada has this amazing free universal healthcare system available to everyone.

But then we see that there's actually nothing. Not even retirees have any care other than what their private employer was willing to provide.

If only  that's what the article said. But of course it's not.

Canadian here. Fully agreed. Any person who touts the greatness of the Canadian system is a plain idiot.
A slight correction though - they do have a system similar to Medicare, again nothing to brag about.

Having is company health benefits cut doesn't mean he won't have government health care.  Separate corporate health insurance is a thing in Canada (I have it) and it covers all kinds of extras.  I used mine for physiotherapy, 100% drug coverage, etc.  But without health insurance, you're not going to die.
