It's always been my understanding that more socialist health care systems equals less R&D for new medical practices / medicines.

I mean I doubt the government would fund every little research campaign or pay high prices for new cures, etc...so operating in a capitalist economy creates more of a drive to advance the medical field.

Isn't Canada's medical R&D practically non-existant? I thought they were all piggy backing off other countries for new medical developments...


The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) spends over 1 billion dollars a year on research. That's quite a bit of money for a country with a population like ours.

No, he means the kind of person that sues for 'slip and fall'

If I fall it's my own damn fault
So, how do you differentiate between the two?

If someone doesn't follow protocol in the hospital and you suffer as a result, that's valid.

If someone runs you over, that's valid.

If you shoot yourself in the foot because you're a dumbass, that's your own fault.

If you slip on a floor, that's your own damn fault for not paying attention.

If you trespass and fall down an unmarked hole, that's your own damn fault.

If you slip on a floor that wasn't marked as slippery, then you should have some grounds.

If if you walk by the wet floor sign and fall downt he stairs, you should be shot dead to help save the gene pool.

No, if you watch where you're walking you can see that the floor is slippery.

I'm sick of being people needing to be coddled to like they've not progressed beyond the age of 3.

Too bad.

I think it's rediculous that people aren't expected to pay attention to what they are doing, it's a complete lack of personal responsibility.

It's not like they put up wet floor signs in braille for blind people.
I don't exactly scope the floor out for wet spots. And blind people are tough.

We have always had enough flu vaccinations until the previous communistic administration thought that the manufactures of them were making too much profit. :rolleyes::mad:
Paying less for goods and services??? How unamerican.
