Fraser Institute report suggests hospital wait times cost Canadians over $1 billion
Yahoo!
Wait times in this country are a problem. Just how big of a problem is highlighted in a new Fraser Institute report. The pro-free market think-tank's annual study, titled The Private Cost of Public Queues for Medically Necessary Care, claims that hospital wait times cost the Canadian economy $1.1 billion in lost workplace productivity in 2013 — an average of about $1,202 for each of the estimated 928,120 Canadians waiting for treatment in 2013.

In praise of philanthropy
DoctorsOntario
Several years ago a critic labelled me "Dr. Profit." I was asked later whether that offended me. I replied, "Not at all. I prefer that to Dr. Deficit." The fact is that all Canadian health workers profit from treating sick or injured patients. Across Canada, hospitals depend on financial support from corporate "profiteers" who donate millions from the proceeds of their private enterprises. Likewise, most of the world's great universities—and medical schools — depend on the generosity of benefactors who fund scholarships and endowments that allow subsidized education for those in need.
