Québec Health Care

The Supreme Court of Canada declares that unreasonable wait times for health care violates the Québec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms.

A good friend emailed me the following observation:

Well of course. Once you put in positive claim rights, reality is going to smack you in the face with a violation. No such thing as a free lunch, price reflects COST, you can magically waive away the price with some sort of constitutional guarantee but the COST is still there and will have to be paid some other way, such as rationing coupons or waiting lists or long lines. Communist Soviet Union was a good example of this. Why was it assumed by the Canuck Libs that some how reality did NOT apply to them?

Interesting to hear it violates the charter of human rights.
