Canada is at the bottom of the pack for the consumer friendliness of its health care system, according to a new report that compared it with 29 European nations.
The Frontier Centre for Public Policy, a Winnipeg-based think-tank, used Canadian data to rank how it would score on the Euro Health Consumer Index. It found that Canada placed 23rd.
And when researchers took into consideration how much countries spend on health care, Canada ranked last on the "bang-for-the-buck" scale.
On the bright side, being last is normal for Canada, so this shouldn't be too hard to take.
