Get well wishes for the healthcare system

Sometimes we're our own worst enemies. We fall in love with an idea, and can't dump it when it stops working for us. As proof, many readers will click out after the next sentence...

Canada's totally tax-funded, universal, single tier, healthcare system is unsustainable and must be changed.

Those of you who stuck around please read Tom Campbell's well-reasoned proposal for modifications that can improve the system, make it more sustainable, while maintaining its accessibility for those at all income levels, if we're prepared to open our minds to alternative approaches. Campbell is a former deputy minister of health, and deputy minister of treasury and economics for Ontario.

Unfortunately, this is viewed as the third rail of Canadian politics, but a truly open public discussion is long overdue.
