LETTER: Horror stories about Canada’s ‘free’ health care

My husband and I visited our friends in Vancouver. Our conversation turned to Canada’s “free” government-run health care.

At the time of our visit, my friend was walking with a cane and on the waitlist for a hip replacement.

Our friends told us 50 percent of their income went to taxes for their free health care.

We revisited them two years later. She was in a wheelchair, still waiting.

Americans, if this is what you think you want, think again.
