If you want to use this QR code (Quick Response code) just save the image and paste it where you want. You can even print it and use it that way. Coffee cups, T-Shirts etc would all be good for the QR code.

Oh, I was under the impression that tort reform of some sort was a part of this bill, isn't it John?
We have measures in place (in Canada) to protect healthcare practitioners against 'frivolous' lawsuits, laws against those few who would pursue case after case after case and yet this is balanced with the patient's rights also. It is very difficult here to sue a doctor and yet, if you have just cause, you certainly can do. Yes, reasonable regulations and restrictions need to be in place, otherwise we'll be left without doctors willing to perform the riskiest of procedures and thank goodness for them. The rising costs of healthcare are an ongoing challenge for every country, though likely not to the extent that the US has been and is experiencing.
On another note, I just want to correct what a few have stated earlier on in this thread. In my understanding of it, healthcare in Canada is not an enshrined Right. Equality of access is a right! The two are quite different.
