Summary "'How might we fix Canada's health-care system?'; 'Why would we want to?'; and 'What's stopping us from doing so?' These three questions lie at the heart of this in-depth exploration of one of the biggest political and personal issues facing Canadians. This book explains why change must occur, in light of the implications of embracing the status quo and doing nothing, and describes how Canadians need to get engaged in order to save our health-care system. This May Hurt a Bit is meant to provide a blueprint for change once those in charge finally acknowledge that most inconvenient truth - namely, that Canada's health-care system is in poor health."-- Provided by publisher
