Doctors versus human beings

From the Toronto Star:
"Days before a Canadian Medical Association meeting expected to be dominated by talk of privatized health care, a poll indicates overwhelming support in this country for keeping medicare public.

The poll by Nanos Research, to be released today, found 86.2 per cent of the 1,001 people surveyed supported or strongly supported "public solutions to make our public health care stronger."

"There is compelling evidence that Canadians across all demographics would prefer a public over a for-profit health-care system," Nik Nanos of Nanos Research said of the poll, commissioned by the Canadian Healthcare Coalition."

and (my emphasis in red):
"The CMA meets for four days beginning Sunday, when outgoing president Robert Ouellet will present the results of a five-country study of health care in Europe.

The study is expected to call for private clinics, such as the chain of radiology centres owned by Ouellet, to play a bigger role in Canada's health-care system."

Stone-cold, and very greedy, psychos.
