Apparently, though... we have enough money to feed, house and educate...

...25,000 people from halfway around the globe...

Rather than having Dr. Carl Emond - an award winning vascular surgeon who was working at the hospital on the day in question - attempt to save the man's life, he was sent by ambulance to the MUHC "superhospital" where he died before having the operation.

"You don't have time to be transferred to another hospital" the staff member said. "You don't just stop doing a surgery."
NatPo has more...
What is especially galling, say hospital staff, is that a highly regarded surgeon was on duty at St. Mary’s on the day the man walked into the ER complaining of abdominal pain. The surgeon wanted to operate but told the ER team that he was no longer allowed to perform such operations. The patient, in his mid-’70s and at that point unconscious, was turned away, transferred to an ambulance and rushed to the "superhospital" of the McGill University Health Centre. He arrived at the Glen site, but died before he could have the surgery.

RELATED: Ontario opens the feedbag...

...to select demographics...
Obviously, one of the significant demographics interested in IVF will be women suffering from so-called “social infertility” - that is, women who reject the increasingly obsolete and icky idea of male-female procreation...
Wynners and Losers, huh?

LAST WORD: Public Transit... more like public nuisance...
The $600 million Edmonton train that snarls traffic, slows down transit times and increases emissions.
I got nuthin'.

Well, it's all a matter of priorities as pertains to the needs of the collectivist ruling elite - collectivism is, in fact, "selectivism" as dwindling revenues and entitlements are parcelled out to interest groups (voting blocks) who will support kleptocratic "selectivism".

Now shut up get to work and pay your taxes so we can buy a dependent voting block with it.


BTW- it is of interest to note the person who was "killed" by the public helth's refusal to treat was a senior - seniors are on the socialist extinction list and the best way to thin them out is refuse them medical care under the guise of rationing - I had this fight many times to get my Dad taken care of with the surgeries he needed - if you wonder why more and more hospital space is being relegated to "palliative care" look into the allegations of Ontario's death panels -

the healthcare system is collapsing in on itself... and as the boomers hit their twilight years the system will explode.

but, strangely... there's always money for refugees, methadone clinics and horrificly expensive drug regimes for self-inflicted diseases like hiv.

how exactly does that make sense?

It can't be said often enough, "we have to get government out of managing access to and delivery of health care and education." Tax-funded accounts should be alloted to every citizen for life and the management of the monies, while limited to health and education for a start, should be left up to the account-holder. Think about it.

sorry, dollops... this is nanny-state ontario where the liberal government spends untold millions on state of the art computerised led highway signs so they can lecture you about drinking, seatbelts, tire pressure & following too close as you drive to work.

it also creates a whole bunch of government jobs they can dole out to party faithful.

you're just lucky there isn't a government flunky to inspect your genitals every time you take a piss.

Neo, it makes sense if you investigate my statement about socialism collapsing into Klepto-nepotism (selectivism) - the glory days of Canadian socialism/collectivism are gone because the commis killed Ontario's (and now Alberta's) wealth engines - Atlantic Canada has always been an economic basket case with local political and corporate "bosses" like the tag team of the Irvings/McCains and the Liberal party - Quebec has always been a mob run government with both entities shaking down the public for select corporate oligarchs and a Laurentian elite, now Ontario has hit that end of days tipping point where there are moe people taking from government than giving to the Ponzi dole -what is left goes to connected selectivist clients - the health care system is a welfare system for medical industry and unions, run by them for them - screw the patient - the same for the social justice industry - it sucks up mega-bucks to keep unemployable humanities grads working on government sinecure.

We now see them expanding borrowed largess into the migrant welcome wagon industry at the expense of other socialized service delivery systems the general public use - these are being rationed. - If you know anyone who lived in soviet era eastern block nations, they ill tell you soviet collectivism is all about rationing thin resources from marginal productivity and redistributing the meagre take to "state friends" ( and of course keeping the whole Ponzi implosion afloat on a sea of propagandist media BS) - we see it in Ontario, Quebec and the east coast - soon AB will hit the tipping point where more people are working/subsidized/contracted to government than pay into the Ponzi redistribution racket -at that point only select politically-aligned interests get the rationed dole

aka the modus operandi of prime minister care bear.
