This documentary provides the real story of how the health care systems in Canada and the United States became so very different, when, at one point, they were essentially the same. Most people under the age of 50, in both countries, are not aware of the intensity of the political struggle that led to the universal medical care system in Canada. Nor are they aware of the aggressive public relations campaigns paid for by for-profit health insurance companies in the United States that for one hundred years have attempted to dissuade the American public from supporting national health care.
