Because you get free health care.

Why isn't there an option for a privatized health care firm?

Because then people who couldn't afford good healthcare would get, as you said, the cheapest one. 



So? They're already getting that now, at least with an optional government health care program, some people would go with the privatized one and in turn get better service, and potentially save the government money?

HAH!  $2.95 today ^^

The government would also save money by not giving anyone health care.

No, right now we're getting mid-level healthcare.  The waits are sometimes long, but the quality is good.  If it was privitized, the government would be using the lowest-bidder.

I'm happy with my healthcare, but Canada need more doctors.
And like a fool I believed myself, and thought I was somebody else...

2.65$PER/GAL Thank god!! It's dropping. :D

Gas --> Health Care... Nice!!
The once grove of splendor,
Aforetime crowned by lilac and lily,
Lay now forevermore slender;
And all winds that liven
Silhouette a lone existence;
A leafless oak grasping at eternity.
