Dr. Brian Day, a surgeon and entrepreneur, assumes the presidency of the Canadian Medical Association this week. Dr. Day isn’t simply a critic of government-run health care, he may be that country’s leading critic – in the 1990s, he founded a private, for-profit surgery center, then challenged the government to shut him down. Dr. Day promises to use his term to popularize the idea of a vibrant private sector for Canadian health care.

A New York Times profile of Dr. Day can be read here. My take on his election was published by the National Post. For his inaugural speech as president of the CMA, see this link.
