Oy Canada (Part XII)

It's been a while since we last looked in on our Friends to the North©, but Bob sent this along earlier today:
But wait, it gets better (or worse, depending on one's perspective):
"(W)e have community after community with patients who are unable to access a family physician for themselves or for their families."
Turns out, Canada would have to come up with over 26,000 new physicians to meet "global standards" (whatever they are), which doesn't seem, um, likely. Of course, they could simply "import" a few more, but the health system's certification process apparently makes that quite challenging (which may actually be a good thing).
But hey, it's free.
