Miracle cure : how to solve America's health care crisis and why Canada isn't the answer by Sally Pipes ( Book )
5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
America has wealth, innovation, and access to the best of everything. So why is our health-care system so broken? Why does it cost more than ever and deliver less? How do we solve the problems of the uninsured and seniors who lack drug coverage? And equally important, why is the Canadian system, widely touted as a sparkling example of compassion and universal access, actually a disastrous model to be avoided?

Government spending facts 2 by Isabella Horry ( Book )
4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This study analyses spending by the three levels of government - federal, provincial, and local - and constructs a profile of who benefits from government expenditure. In 1990 government redistributed 10.0% of GDP through social programs (other than CPP), an increase from 6.7% in 1970. Interest payments made up 20.3% of government spending in 1990, up from 10.4% in 1970. The province that received the least total government spending per capita in 1990 was British Columbia, at $10,647. The province that received the most spending per capita was Nova Scotia, at $12,372, while of all governments, the Territories received the most from all levels of government, at $27,707 per capita. All provinces have experienced an increase in the fraction of government spending to total provincial GDP since 1970. Social security payments for all the Atlantic provinces amount to only 10.8% of total social security payments made in the country. Of the provincial/territorial governments, the Territories spend the most per capita, followed by Alberta, while Prince Edward Island spends the least. Ontario receives 60% of all federal interest paid on the outstanding public debt, and yet it pays just 45% of the taxes collected by the federal government

Plan B : the future of the rest of Canada by Gordon Gibson ( Book )
4 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In June 1990, Gordon Gibson predicted in an editorial in the Financial Post, " ... After the [upcoming federal] election, the Liberals are the largest minority group, largely based in Ontario, with a bit from the Atlantic provinces. The Tories are destroyed. Quebec is most strongly represented by separatist MPs, and the West by Reformers demanding a far stronger role for their region. What you have is the first day of the negotiations for the Canadian Common Market ..." Gordon Gibson, in a May 1993 monograph for the Canada West Foundation, wrote, "What if our ongoing game of constitutional chicken reaches such a point that the international financial community begins to doubt our ability to survive as a nation, or to pick up the pieces afterward? After a generation of deficits, we would be in serious trouble if the flow of international capital stopped, even briefly. Indeed, if we don't make it quite clear to the rest of the world that we have some sort of a 'Plan B' if the existing process fails, then we may wind up provoking some rather unpleasant economic consequences." In this startling, groundbreaking book, Gordon Gibson describes "Plan B" in detail. Basing his scenarios and conclusions on a sound understanding of Canada and its politics, the author explains in lucid, readable prose how the future Canada will look. Plan B: The Future of the Rest of Canada is essential reading for every Canadian concerned about the nation's future
