The Healthcare Movie
”People are more important than profits.”
This documentary tells the story of how the health care systems of Canada and the United States developed and how they affect the well-being of people in their respective countries. In the United States each year 45,000 people die and over 931,000 go bankrupt due to non-existent or inadequate health care coverage. In Canada everyone has access to health care when they need it and at a cost they can afford, so that Canadians live longer than Americans and no one goes bankrupt because of medical bills.
The Healthcare Movie was produced by Laurie Simons and Terry Sherrenberg and it is narrated by Kiefer Sutherland (grandson of Tommy Douglas, the Saskatchewan Premier who initiated a non-profit health care system in Canada).
