The Next Time Some Dumbshit Scaremongers About Canada…


…show them this:

Our friends at Sadly, No! take a look at the actual outcomes between the US and Canada. I don’t think it will surprise you to see that the U.S. system doesn’t measure up so well:

Circulatory disease deaths per 100,000:

  • Canada: 219
  • United States: 265

    Child maltreatment deaths per 100,000:

  • Canada: 0.7
  • United States: 2.2

    Digestive disease deaths per 100,000:

  • Canada: 17.4
  • United States: 20.5

    Infant mortality rate per 1,000 live births

  • Canada: 5.08
  • United States: 6.3

    Intestinal diseases death rate

  • Canada: 0.3%
  • United States: 7.3%

    Proability of not reaching age 60:

  • Canada: 9.5%
  • United States: 12.8%

    Then entertain yourselves by asking them how a country with such a no good, very bad, horrible health care system ends up creaming the United States in every single metric.

      According to the CIA's statistics, the average life expectancy in Canada is 81 years. In the U.S. it's 78. They live three years longer than we do, in a climate that's generally worse and a country that has far more wilderness.

      I just had a look at the figures – in Australia, the life expectancy figures are about a year higher than for Canadians (both for males and females).That horrible socialized (or in our case, semi-socialized) medicine – it keeps poor people alive. And what do they do? Some of them turn around and vote.Can't have that! They might vote for the other guy…
