Recently the Canadian Medical Association elected Dr. Brian Day to be its next president.
This has led to much hand-wringing on the left, as Day is seen as a proponent of ending the government's monopoly over health care.
Yet as Dr. David Gratzer writes in today's National Post:
"Dr. Day isn't suggesting that the entire system be privatized, as his most zealous critics have charged. He simply recognizes that there is a role for a vibrant private sector in health care -- as there is in the other nine-tenths of the economy."
In other words, the Berlin Wall of socialist health care in this country is starting to at long last crumble.
