It's an interesting question that I have never really had to consider because, as a Canadian, we have universal health care. To have to worry about whether one can afford to get sick or injured seems incredible, though I know it's true for some in the US. If we travel internationally, Canadians often choose to get extended coverage, but it's reasonable enough when factored into the overall cost of a trip that includes airfare, hotels, and other assorted fees. In some ways, that sort of travel is a want, not a need, so not everyone is entitled to it. Basic domestic travel by bicycle I might view differently.

It is a political question though. No way around it.
