It's a shame that in order to provide tips on defending the pharmaceutical industry (PRN, Jan. 22, "Battling Bias" by Nancy Turett) you have to take a swipe at the
Canadian healthcare system. It's not perfect, but by any measure of healthcare standards, Canadians are healthier than Americans. The "long wait" issue has been so exaggerated,
it's become completely detached from the facts. Many drugs are, in fact, approved for use in Canada before they are in the U.S.! Check your facts.
