ps my second attempt of posting :)

I too completed the survey, but it sure seemed to be a marketing survey, as opposed to a "policy" survey that will influence the decision makers. Furthermore, I was irritated by the blatant Americanisms in the survey. One example - they clearly did not know that health care is a provincial matter in Canada rather than federal like in the USA. Clearly, they had just cut and pasted a US survey, changing only a few words. I gave them a bit of a blast for that in the comments.

Oh well, take the five bucks donation or gift and run.

Hi wandnr, we surely had a chance to show that the American System is quite different from the Canadian , correct ?! I found it long to complete ; you summed it up well : Health Care different from the US ! ...thanks for responding here and to the Diabetes Hands Foundation (parent of and its partnership with dQ&A!
