The Skinny on Canada (witty, right?)

I don’t know if a single payer health care system would have prevented our current obesity situation—but it’s difficult not to look at our neighbors to the north and notice significantly lower levels of obesity on this map (via Richard Florida).

David Eaves:

If Canadian provinces were ranked along side US States, they would rank 1st (BC), 2nd (QC), 3rd (ON), 4th (AL) and tied for 5th (MB) (YK) as the least obese provinces/states. Colorado would be the first American state placing 7th, with the provinces of NS in 8th and SK in 9th.

Whatever the reason, Canada is doing something right, and the U.S. is going about the obesity situation all wrong.
