Healthcare Hypocrisy

The RCMP and Armed Forces will now be receiving private healthcare through a recently-signed $400 million contract with Calian Technologies, a private healthcare outsourcer.

Here's the kicker:

The RCMP is spending $250 million on health-care, with some of that money going to private clinics. Corrections Canada also spends some of its budget on private health care.

This makes the government the largest purchaser of private health care services in the country.

Canada expects that every man will do his duty to defend the sacred symbol of our nation.

The Armed Forces and Mounties may have to die in the line of fire.

The rest of us may have to die in line for treatment.

The really sad thing is that Calian is such an awful company to work for. They will tell you anything and promise you the world to get you to leave your current job to come on with them... the government really should re-consider who they choose to do business with.
