Phil interviews Gary Engler about his novel, "The Year We Became Us," a book that merges the Cuban 'missile crisis' with the story of Canadian health care.

1962 was a pivotal for Canada. Most people don't know about the doctors strike, which could have prevented the emergence of socialized medicine.

A Koch-style U.S. campaign outspent medicare proponents 2-1. It was only the mobilization of unions, community groups, and church organizations that allowed this definitive Canadian institution to exist.
