"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Nationalised healthcare update.

Waiting lists for common exams to detect major diseases -- such as mammograms and chest X-rays for cancer and bone mineral densitometry for osteoporosis -- are growing at an alarming and outrageous pace in Ontario, potentially endangering the lives of patients, a new report concludes.

The analysis of waiting times for six specific exams in 60 communities across Ontario, to be announced tomorrow, will show Toronto patients are waiting as long as 30 weeks for the front-line tests, while some communities are offering the services much quicker than others. The study was compiled by the Ontario Association of Radiologists.
