    With the health care debate so heated up in Washington, the decline of health care in BC Canada is cooling off.  Alberta's problems are also coming to the fore, with closures of some hospitals.

    But the problems continue to mount in British Columbia, where it is close to impossible to find a doctor who will treat new patients, no matter how serious the health problems are.  Patients are foisted off onto nurse practitioners, who are nothing more than data recorders, which they present to the physician.  The patient is allowed no contact at all with a primary physician.

    The general public's opinion of the health care in that province has escalated to the point that if it weren't for the Olympics on the horizon, there would be serious action and protests would abound.  Most of the population has decided to wait until the next election, or perhaps sooner, to voice their displeasure and fears.  Which would mean a complete change of government.  Back to the NDP, the only alternative.
