" A new study by the Fraser Institute says the number of doctors per capita will drop over the next decade unless Canada relies on foreign-trained physicians.
The study released in Calgary says government restrictions on education and training have caused the problem, which will only get worse between now and 2015.
The study urges governments to allow more qualified Canadian students access to medical training to ease the reliance on foreign doctors.
The doctor shortage has grown in recent years after provincial governments in the 1980s cut back the number of people allowed into medical school.
The Fraser Institute concludes that Canada's reliance on foreign- trained doctors is forcing poorer countries, such as South Africa and India, to make do with fewer physicians."
"Dear Africa and India (and other poorer countries in desperate need of doctors):
We hope you are feeling alright. Not so much because we actually care aboooot you, but because if you don't feel alright, well then, you're SOL!
You see, because of our broken and antiquated health system, we have no doctors. Most of our doctors go to the U.S., where they can actually make a good living, and are paid what they deserve. Our broken socialist system doesn't allow doctors to get paid what they deserve. As such, we're taking your doctors!
So, toughen up there, poor people of the world. We're making you pay because we're too bull-headed to admit our health system has collapsed.
It's all abooot us!
