Well, 2c, I must admit I need new eyeglasses!
Regarding health insurance. Why is this needed? We get insurance when we are out of the country, but with the Ontario Helth Plan and the drug benefits for those over 65, we have not bought health insurance - We at one time had it though a company plan, but main benefit seemed to be for semi-privat.e hospital rooms.
Maybe this should be a separate thread - I will start one.
Can anyone shed light on why we NEED private health insurance when we have universal medicare?
