This paper discusses the long waiting lists, shortage of nurses and physicians, closure of hospitals and the increasing need to have private health insurance coverage. The paper asserts that if the federal government had its citizens' best interests, it would allow citizens to acquire the best type of healthcare available instead of limiting citizens to a long waiting list. The paper therefore believes that the federal government has failed to uphold its promise of a universal, accessible healthcare to all citizens of Canada. Furthermore, according to the paper, in order to allow the once-stellar Canadian health care system to exist, there should be a balance of powers, acquisition of taxes and distribution of taxes.
