All health systems do have failings, and since each one *is* a human life, none are excusable.

However, I am a Canadian with a serious chronic illness, married to another Canadian with another serious chronic illness, and of course we both know lots and lots of Canadians of all ages and all states of health.

Not wanting to excuse any tragedy perpetuated by mismanagement of resources or absolute scarcity in the Canadian medical system, I can honestly say that noone I have ever met has complained to me about any serious misadventure in our healthcare system.

Do misadventures exist? Absolutely! And none are pardonable. But... for what it's worth, I have never met anyone myself who has had one, going on 67 years of life here. I acknowledge the problems exist, but they do not cancel out this peace of mind about health that most Canadians experience.
