Who knew? The Wall Street Journal editors tell of Canada reducing tax rates, shrinking government, and recovering from the recession quicker than the rest of us.

  1. Maybe you should read the article. Regarding health care, it included this…
    “The one area Canada has been slow to reform is health care, which continues to be dominated by government. However, some provinces have allowed a series of small experiments: a completely private emergency hospital in Montreal and several private clinics in Vancouver. British Columbia and Alberta also are experimenting with market-based payments to hospitals. While these are incremental steps, the path in Canada is fairly clear: More markets and choice will exist in the future. The trend in the U.S. is the opposite.”
