i'm well aware canada's healthcare system is vastly inadequate, but just imagine if the housing system were anywhere near what the healthcare system was like.
for-profit housing should be as obscene as for-profit healthcare. flipping houses should be seen as as unethical as hiking up insulin prices.
@Ventronik it varies from province to province but what we have here in ontario is basically universal health insurance. doctors bill the government for services they do. however, public health insurance doesn't cover everything (e. g. prescription medications, dental care, eye care), so people pay out of pocket or get private insurance for it (through their job). or more commonly go without.
