Selective spin 
(en francais)

Here's a good example of what I was talking about in my 'Letters to the Editor' post the other day:
Why childcare matters
Most Western democracies including Australia, New Zealand, Britain and many other European countries have national child-care systems to support working parents, enhance child development and set the stage for lifelong learning. But in Canada, despite more than 30 years of grassroots activism and research pointing to the importance of investing in early childhood education, the federal government has not moved forward on the issue, she says.
Australia, New Zealand, Britian and the other European countries referred to in this piece all have various forms of public/private healthcare. Why is it we so dearly want to emulate these various countries national childcare systems but not their healthcare systems?

There is only one payer in all these discussions and the issues are all linked together. The more money we pour into the blackhole of bureaucratic, Soviet style rationed healthcare, the less money that is available for other initiatives.
