    Yes, Canada is a large country. If you live in Antarctica, you’d probably have to do some serious traveling to see a specialist. Not really sure what this tells us about Canadian healthcare.

    Should all small rural towns hundreds of kilometers away from major cities have every type of specialist nearby? I think this might be unreasonable in a country as large as Canada.

    Fix your healthcare system before you complain about ours.
