Justin Trudeau and ESG Put The Nail In The Coffin For Canada’s Universal HealthCare System: 2 patients die waiting for care in Montreal-area emergency room – December 5, 2023
First things first, and I am going to be fair to the current Prime Minister of Canada. Canada’s health care system was failing around the time Pierre Trudeau was in power, but as per usual with SOCIALIST ideas, it takes a while before the failure becomes evident. Because you have to remember, especially under a RULE BY FIAT monetary system, fake money can do things that would never happen under a Gold Standard.
So, GLOBALLY, Canadian dollars are still being accepted, giving Canadians purchasing power internationally, which allows, in this instance, Canada’s health care system to purchase foreign-made medical supplies for a lot less money than it would cost if they were made domestically.
Why I bring this up is that the DOMESTIC value of the Canadian dollar is dropping at an accelerated pace, which also equates to fewer people wanting to work in Canada’s PUBLIC healthcare system.
Canadian Equalization Payment Numbers in 2023
- Quebec: $14 billion
- Manitoba: $3.5 billion
- Nova Scotia: $2.8 billion
- New Brunswick: $2.6 billion
- Prince Edward Island: $561 million
- Ontario: $421 million
Now, with anything PUBLIC, you get a lot of REGULATIONS and expectations from VOTERS, some of whom aren’t paying taxes, meaning that they wouldn’t be able to afford PRIVATE health care if that option were available to Canadians.
Where am I going with this, you ask? Well, the problem with universal health care is that many people show up to hospitals because of the perception that it’s FREE.
So people who are actually sick, have to wait in line while people who FEEL sick get attended to. You see, when there’s an out of pocket expense or even if there’s a perception that you can only afford to go to a hospital for low-income people, most people with common sense will be more selective about when they go to the hospital.
Now, yes, one could argue that sounds like a cruel medical system. Still, the alternative to that is an entitlement medical system, and Canada has now officially entered into a phase in which solving the LEFT-WING-created climate crisis is the main focus of the Progressive governments all over the world.
This is the problem with making health care POLITICAL: politicians, in order to appease the ever-growing demands of the voters, are disinterested in solving problems they created. Instead, the federal government creates new problems.

Now, Canadians will argue that health care is provincial jurisdiction. Still, it’s really not because PRIVITIZING health care in Canada is ILLEGAL, so whether it’s Quebec or Alberta, all Canadian provinces have this LABOR shortage problem with health care.
In Canada, when a lot of working-class people enter hospitals, they expect to be taken care of, and many like to complain when they’re being taken care as if Canada’s health care were privatized, but truth be told, Canadian hospitals, POLITICALLY can’t be more efficient, because the entire process is POLTIICIZED.
One of the main reasons why you get people wanting to nationalize entire industries is because, for some, being more efficient costs people jobs; others say innovation and efficiency are inhumane; how dare you fire these people and replace them with robots?
When politics, when politicians enter the business-sphere, you create a lot of STUPID problems. Now, some will say Canada’s healthcare system is better than America’s healthcare system, and in certain respects, you’re right, but America still has a MARKET-based healthcare system, and each U.S. State has the flexibility to allow private health institutions to make changes and try new things, so the affluent still get great health care in the United States, whereas in Canada, the affluent tend to make sure they have duel citizenship to avoid Canada’s public health care altogether.
In the end, what Justin Trudeau represents is an expansion of the welfare state, without addressing the systematic failures of the CURRENT welfare state. It’s for this reason that Justin Trudeau may indeed be the Prime Minister who destroys Canada’s Universal Health Care system.
Interesting times ahead!
