Starving healthcare funding leads to medical bribery in Montreal
As archons in Canada starve Canada's public health system, a black market is developing in the medical community.
(NaturalNews.com) -- The Gazette reports that Montreal's Royal Victoria Hospital (RVH) is currently the centre of a controversy involving a surgeon who has reportedly charged several individuals $10,000 cash sums to receive bariatric surgery, also known as gastric bypass surgery, earlier than the normal system would have allowed.
The health care black market in Canada is not confined just to bariatric surgery, either, as some doctors have now made it a routine practice to only show up for surgeries, birth deliveries, and other important procedures if patients are willing to pay them a cash sum upfront. And in some cases, doctors still fail to show up even after being paid for these procedures, which is precisely what happened to Francois Gauthier last year when she tried to purchase cancer surgery outside the Medicare system for her ailing mother.
"It would be great if we could have it done here, without having to pay and without having to wait so long," said Lisa Petroziello to Global Montreal about her situation trying to get bariatric surgery in Quebec. Fed up with waiting endlessly for care, which was putting her own life at risk, she finally decided to fly to Mexico and have the procedure done there instead for $8,000. "People pay for surgery because they don't want to die waiting for it."
