Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references and index. --- Caring for Profit: How Corporations are Taking Over Canada's Health Care System shows how Canada's $77 billion a year health care industry is turning away from its original mandate of providing the best possible medical care to Canadians, and how multinational capital is forcing its way into our non-profit health care system. Colleen Fuller gives us a "who's who" of the key people and corporations making money in Canada's health care sector, and a portrait of the strategies and alliances that threaten to replace the principles of medicare with the dictates of the stock market.
