"Health care pales next to perils of eating kittens"

The only thing more attention-grabbing about an article in Saturday's Toronto Globe & Mail than its headline is its content. Here's a sampling:
Voters say the future of the health-care system is the most important issue facing Ontario. Finally, on the 11th day of the election campaign, the subject was thrust into the spotlight.

Progressive Conservative Leader Ernie Eves and his Liberal counterpart, Dalton McGuinty, yesterday devoted major addresses to the stresses and strains facing Ontario's $28-billion health system. Not that you'll hear much about it. The leaders' noble support of the sanctity of medicare got eclipsed later in the day by the Conservatives' astonishing characterization of Mr. McGuinty as an "evil reptilian kitten-eater from another planet."
And we think our debate over U.S. Medicare is a nasty one . . . .
