Copied from a slide describing our employee benefits.

How is something like this accepted as normal?

@beto no kidding, right? same here in Canada, I’ve literally spent overnight in emergency, sleeping in a chair, when it’s not even that busy. it’s such a disgrace. Canadians say our health care is great but the reality is, people die and suffer of completely-preventable ailments with great regularity. I could go on and on about it, so many experiences of friends, family and myself.
