Through the whole health care kafuffle down south - where a buncha family members live - I did not complain about Canada as a model, because on the whole it's pretty good.
When it comes to a single provider, however, it can be a struggle to get treatment options on the menu such as those for the diagnostic junkbox of autism spectrum disorder. I pay a ton of money out to therapists for my lovely child, while the main support we get comes not from the health ministry but from the ministry that also handles welfare - the provincial government doesn't want to cough up the actual amount of money required to deal with it as a medical issue, and so provides a sop via the same place that junkies go to beg for money (and hey, I'm cool with junkies getting money but I generally don't wanna hang out with them unless absolutely necessary).
This bullshit has been pulled by the tepid socialist governments I generally vote for and by the current pretend centrists. No voting for anybody who doesn't recognize autism as a health issue. FUCK YOU KEVIN FALCON. Also FUCK THE OLYMPICS of course.
Below is the most coherent picture yet drawn by the lovely daughter, who has an absurdly good memory, enjoys dictionaries,* can pun painfully, and is a pretty happy kid in any case.
