Treating Canada's Health Care System

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

When Dr. Danielle Martin spoke before a U.S. Senate subcommittee a few years ago, she taught Americans a thing or two about universal health coverage. Her defence of Canada's health-care system made Canadians proud and dispelled some myths Americans may have believed about socialized medicine. But there's more to Danielle Martin than just being a staunch defender of Medicare. She is also a pragmatist who works both sides of the health-care system: she's a clinician at a general family practice at Women's College Hospital in Toronto, as well as the hospital's vice-president. She joins The Agenda to discuss her new book, "Better Now: Six Big Ideas to Improve Health Care for All Canadians."
