Canadian Hospitals: Why you Will have to Pay for it

We all pay for that service already through taxes and such but there will be a day where you’ll have to pay at the door just like in the United States.

Why? The system we have now works at its best when the majority of the population pays for a minority that uses hospitals.

There’s different factors that’s going on right now that will change the order of things which will require the government to add fees for aid services. See bellow:

1. Baby Boomers: The majority of the working population is from a generation of baby boomers. Once they starts to retire, which they’re starting right now, the people who will be working to pay for those services will be less than the majority.

Here’s a definition of Baby boomers:

2. Cancer and other diseases that are on the rise:

In 1960, 1 out of 300 people had cancer
In 1990, 1 out of 75 people had cancer
In 2006, 1 out of 3 people had cancer
In 2010 - 2011, 1 out of 2 people will have cancer

Treatment cost a lot more than prevention. Studies show that the population is getting sicker, which means that it will cost more to the country down the road than originally planed when the free hospital system was introduced.

To resume, the majority of people won’t be working and there’s more people sick today than yesterday.
