The Wonders of Socialized Medicine

The headline says it all, "Thousands of surgeries may be cut in Metro Vancouver due to government underfunding..."

"According to the leaked document, Vancouver Coastal — which oversees the budget for Vancouver General and St. Paul’s hospitals, among other health-care facilities — is looking to close nearly a quarter of its operating rooms starting in September and to cut 6,250 surgeries, including 24 per cent of cases scheduled from September to March and 10 per cent of all medically necessary elective procedures this fiscal year."
