Ontario leads the country in terms of restricting access to healthcare by citizens willing to pay. And, of course, Canada is now the only country in the world that forbids its citizens access to privately funded healthcare. Will Canadians and Ontarians be forced to go elsewhere to purchase proven clinical breakthroughs that government cannot afford to offer everyone?
