I tried to believe but you cannot really force yourself to have faith, it's about as silly as forcing someone else to abandon theirs.
In a sense I envy the religious, being able to believe in god would make things seem so much less bleak, make everything seem more meaningful, I just can't truly believe and I could never fool myself - pretending to believe something i really don't . That being said because of this I cannot go about and tell someone they are wrong, for regardless of who is right int he matter I rather people stick to their belief rather then lie to themselves about things. (This doesn't mean you can't change belief one way or another, just imo means you can't force yourself, or someone else) I enjoy having proper discussions on the matter, but people who just go about insulting everyone who believe something else are just ridiculous.
tl:dr long ass confession for beliefs don't worry - carry on

Wow, so many great points to argue on here, where do I start? Ah, yes, let's start on the defense of the Canadian Health Care system. Let's see, after doing some research, after being so monotonously raged at for not providing "statistical evidence" to support my claim that Canada's healthcare is shit, (Canada's military isn't the greatest either, but that's another topic for another time.)
First off, Canada has one of the lowest physician-to-population ratios in the world, add fixed hospital budgets and the monopolization of health insurance by the government, and you get a universal access health care system that also fails to provide access to services in a timely manner. The most recent annual survey of wait times in Canada revealed that patients have to wait approximately four and a half months on average to receive treatment for medically necessary elective procedures after referral from a general practitioner (whom many Canadians also have a hard time finding). While the wait is shorter for cancer patients (about a month), we also have to remember the long wait patients face for access to diagnostic imaging technologies like MRIs (over two months on average) and CT scanners (almost a month on average) which are vital for assisting in making the diagnosis in the first place. Such delays can have large impacts on cancer patients given the possibility that the size of a cancerous tumor doubles every four months.
Shall I continue?

Would you, however defend that your system does not have any sort of waiting periods involved in receiving said treatments and evaluations? Knowing several Canadians in the medical field (so only by word of mouth here), one of the reasons that the healthcare system seems so great from the outside is that it keeps the general population very 'healthy'; What I mean to say is that general sickness and disease is kept at bay, quality of life is high. However, those with terminal illnesses and in need of organ transplants/donations, major surgeries, and particularly cancer treatments end up on a waiting list that ultimately causes them to DIE while waiting. Obviously that is not the intent of the Canadian healthcare system, but in being that way, there are ONLY the healthy people left behind, generally speaking. I am very happy that you were able to receive the treatments that you did, but I think it's a gross generalization to assume that the system at large is anything like what you experienced. From what I have read and understand from personal testimonies (including many other Canadians who have had need for the surgeries, etc that I generally referenced), you were in a minority of a lucky few, or were diagnosed in a very convenient time frame aligning with available resources.
TLDR; I think you're making a generalization which falsely overestimates the system, and good on you for kicking cancer's ass. I'm right behind you about to wrap up my chemo for testicular. Fuck cancer.
