    I think you meant to say "Hospitals In Ontario", not banks in the title.

    Then the extreme sports nuts should be notified not to try going over the falls in a barrel any time soon.

    You went over the falls in a barrel? Wow.... I thought I was crazy jumping out of a perfectly good airplane at 13,500 feet a while back. :D

    When the feds strip back funding from 50% to 14% and reduce funding in terms of GDP from 6% to 4.5% in the matter of a decade, this situation is inevitable. Banks have an obligation to be fiscally responsible to their own interests only. Therefore, neither the Provincial government nor these financial institutions should incur any of the blame since it falls squarely on the shoulders on the great white hype, Mr. Paul Martin.

    But the Canadian health care system is a utopian ideal! How can this be happening? :rolleyes:

    Unfortunately, hospitals swimming in red ink is not a problem solely for those north of the border. Many hospitals, particularly non-profits (gee, shouldn't not having to pay taxes make it a slam dunk to be successful?) have faced or are facing their demise. Many of these have already been sold to for-profit corps. and many more will. Here comes lower quality of care, with higher costs.
