More ranting ahead!

So, they've kept the wolf away from the door. Ontario's Minister of Health will personally meet the Med-Scan van at the border to turn them away.

Here's what I don't understand. Citizens of Ontario (aged 19 and above) can spend $200 on alcohol, or cigarettes, or
Doritos, and the Government gladly accepts the PST and various sin taxes associated with these vices. Why can't these same citizens spend $200 on ultrasounds?

Senior citizens are lining up for these services. No-one is forcing them to have ultrasounds. It's their money! Why can't they spend it as they choose?

Oh. My. God. Look at me, criticizing the sacred cow Canada Health Act. Am I becoming Americanized?
