Thanks, but no thanks.
I grew up in communism that gave everybody totally free health care.
The quality of the service was so great, that having free care I was spending fortune on private clinics.
Canada has better choice of economical Mercedes including Smart diesels, while we need well over 50 grands for basic models.
