Lack of Hospital Accountability Leaves Canadians at Risk

Many Canadians have learned the hard way that their healthcare system is not nearly as safe as it needs to be. My family's eye-opening experience began a few years ago with the sudden hospitalization of our elderly mother, who sustained a serious brain injury after a fall.

New Year's Business Resolution: Think Big Data

The Week That Was: Prince Harry NUDE PIX!

Oh what a completely gratuitous way of getting you to read this blog! Shameless sensationalism, pure and simple. We try to be more high-minded than that at HuffPost, at least over here on the blog rail, where we would never post links to the red-headed royal frolicking around a Las Vegas hotel room in the buff, with an equally starkers "poker" (poke her? surely that's what the reports meant ...) companion.

There is little agreement on how best to move forward, especially when it comes to the thorny issue of funding.
