all walks of life on the Canadian health system.
    "Canadians are shocked and even angry that their health-care system, what
we call 'Medicare', has been used to frighten Americans trying to make up
their minds. Some of what has been said about our Medicare system are outright
falsehoods, like the claim that we can't choose our own doctors or that
government 'bureaucrats' can deny us needed treatment," said rabble Senior
Contributing Editor Murray Dobbin. "These falsehoods would be laughable were
it not for the fact that Americans might abandon the opportunity for
excellent, less expensive health care because they believe these stories,"
Dobbin said.

our system and from the professionals, doctors, nurses, and administrators who
