OK I'll bite

"The majority of Canadians only like America for its defense."

There is a big difference between "defense" and "militarism" as Ron Paul would say. If America goes bankrupt because of military spending and can no longer buy what we produce our economy will be in deep trouble.

"Otherwise, they would not be able to afford public health care imo."

We would be better off with a mixed public/private system like much of Europe. However, under the terms of NAFTA we would have to allow US healthcare companies up here and almost no one wants that. So we are stuck with the Status Quo.
