OTTAWA - Poverty is the No. 1 factor in determining whether Canadians live long, healthy lives, says a report from the Canadian Medical Association.
And another report released Tuesday, this one from the Fraser Institute, gives Canadians a stark reminder of just how costly the current health-care system can be.
The CMA report, 'Health Care in Canada: What makes us sick,' was compiled as a result of town hall meetings the CMA held across the country, asking Canadians what issues they think affect their health.
