Subject: Re:  After Jagmeet Singh�s win, we need to talk more about the ills of socialism, Anthony Furey, October 14, 2017

The province of Saskatchewan voted for "socialism" under Tommy Douglas, and his party helped create the first single-payer, universal health care program on the continent  - the precursor of Canadian Medicare which receives high public approval.
In contrast, Donald Trump's America, that bastion of free market capitalism, makes it difficult for its poorest citizens to access affordable medical treatment. 
Today, Canada's New Democratic Party is calling for universal pharmaceutical drug coverage. Despite Anthony Furey's dire warnings about the "the ills of socialism", I'm willing to take my chances and take my medicine.

1. Tommy Douglas
Thomas Clement "Tommy" Douglas PC CC SOM (20 October 1904 � 24 February 1986) was a Canadian social-democratic politician and Baptist minister. He was elected to the Canadian House of Commons in 1935 as a member of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF). He left federal politics to become the Saskatchewan CCF's leader and then the seventh Premier of Saskatchewan from 1944 to 1961. His government was the first social-democratic government in North America, and it introduced the continent's first single-payer, universal health care program.

2. Canadians differ from Trump on view of public health care, poll shows
Americans have elected a president who calls Canadian health care "catastrophic" but a new poll suggests a majority of people in this country want the public system expanded and that they are willing to pay more taxes to make that happen.

3. NDP tables motion to implement universal pharmacare
