Happy Canada Day

In honour of Canada Day, I offer the following poll on Canada and her relations with her neighbour to the south...



Poll #1013744 Canada Day

HEALTH CARE "475828790" Health Care: Canada's health care system, in comparison to that in the USA, is

superior because it is publicly funded and universal (i.e. everybody has health care regardless of income) or for some other reason
42(77.8%)
inferior because of a shortage of doctors (who'd rather work in the US where they make more $$ and because of longer wait times) or for some other reason
6(11.1%)
about the same
6(11.1%)

Relations with the USA "Photo Canada-US relations are

good because Canada sent troops to Afghanistan and is a partner in NORAD and NATO or for some other reason

2(3.8%)
neither good nor bad.
