Vancouver patients needing neurosurgery, treatment for vascular diseases and other medically necessary procedures can expect to wait longer for care, NDP health critic Adrian Dix said Monday.
Dix said a Vancouver Coastal Health Authority document shows it is considering chopping more than 6,000 surgeries in an effort to make up for a dramatic budgetary shortfall that could reach $200 million.

Canadian Medical Association: "Cut Surgeries!"
More good news from our socialist model medical system north of the border: "Thousands of surgeries may be cut in Metro Vancouver..." Just read the first two paragraphs of the article and it proves up everything that those of us opposed to Obamacare have been saying:
Now according to estimates, there are roughly 33.7 million Canadians - about 2.1 million of them live in Metro Vancouver. Extrapolate these numbers out and that's close to 100,000 surgeries that are going to get "lopped" from the system. This is simple math folks, not rocket science. End this obamanation now and let's get down to truly addressing the problems in our healthcare system.
