AIMS President Brian Lee Crowley’s seminal talk – “The Top Ten Things People Believe About Canadian Health Care, But Shouldn’t” continues to be a “best seller” with US audiences. On November 10, 2004 Crowley delivered this talk to an audience of informed and influential health stakeholders in Washington, DC at an event hosted by the presitgious Heritage Foundation.
Crowley’s talk begins:
Of the many ways that are available to tackle the question of what we all need to learn from Canada’s 30-year love affair with the government monopoly, single-payer health care system that we in Canada call ” Medicare,” I think the model of that great health care analyst and public policy guru, David Letterman, serves our purposes best. I am therefore going to entitle my talk today, “The Top Ten Things People Believe About Canadian Health Care, But Shouldn’t.”
