Canada’s healthcare system is the proverbial third-rail of the country’s politics. Yet despite no one wanting to touch the issue, there is a body of evidence supporting the idea that the system is broken, as evidenced by wait times, rationed care, and a lack of patient choice. Much of this is a product of politics, Dr. Shawn Whatley writes in his new book, “When Politics Comes Before Patients”.

Dr. Whatley joins True North’s Andrew Lawton to explain what’s wrong with the system – and how to fix it.

A Canadian broadcaster and columnist, Andrew serves as a journalism fellow at True North and host of The Andrew Lawton Show.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
