Oy Canada: Dog Pound Edition

Ah, it just doesn't get any better than this:
Our Neighbors to the North© have apparently outdone themselves. As we've repeatedly noted here at IB, that "Free Health Care" comes at a steep price: actual, you know, care. If you're a Canuck with cancer, you'll likely wait well over a month to see an oncologist.
But if your Siberian Husky has a suspicious growth, he'll be seen in a few days. I'll let Barbara Righton and Nicholas Kohler (who co-wrote the linked article) have the last word:
"Trouble is, when it comes to medical care in Canada, our pets are often getting what we get — and a whole lot more besides. And they're getting it faster too."
