Canadian Healthcare System

From The Last Amazon: Fairy Tales in Crack Houses
Case in point; read Rosie Dimanno's recent column in the Toronto Star on current report issued by Toronto Drug Strategy Advisory Committee:

So let me get this straight: I can't smoke cigarettes in Toronto but I can smoke crack? The former is a public health risk, nipped in the butt at nearly every indoor venue, with bossy and vilifying interdiction campaigns that have transformed smokers into social pariahs. But the latter is a personal choice that ought not to be stigmatized by a judgmental society.
This is a twofer:
  1. We are given useful information for planning a Toronto vacation, and
  2. shown a healthcaree model likely to be instituted in Minneapolis, MN.
The latter is more to the point of the article.
