'Liberal government, you can shove it where the sun don't shine'

I totally agree:

Retired transit worker Al Balfour, 76, stopped Tory to complain about the healthcare system — and especially the healthcare tax. He said he suffered a stroke several weeks ago and that he had to wait five hours at a local hospital to see a doctor.

“Liberal government, you can shove it where the sun don’t shine,” Mr. Balfour said.

“Those are your words,” said Mr. Tory with a laugh. “But you can tell your friends.”

I'd rather take my car for an oil change than a member of my family to a walk-in clinic, which I must do since we don't have a family doctor.

At the auto shop the waiting room is pleasant enough, there's TV, internet, daily papers etc.

The walk-in clinic? There's not enough seats, a line up out the door, old furniture, dirty, noisy, no windows and the staff aren't nearly as friendly - understandably so since it's a miserable place.

Balfour's unfortunate mistake was not going to Chretien's hospital. They obviously have no waiting lists or shortage of doctors.
