A Non-Poetic Rant: Medical Crises in Canada: A Crises of Monopoly?

We are told that our health care institutions and professions are in a state of financial crises: there are not enough doctors, for instance to service the Canadian population.

Isn’t this crises self-generated by the monopoly enjoyed by the Canadian Medical Association? If foreign immigrant doctors were qualified easily and medical school admitted more students, and competition was allowed to determine the prices for the services of doctors, there would be enough resources, savings, and medical services without the exorbitant high cost.

This has already been done in other professions- for example, lawyers- where the market determines the price a lawyer receives for his or her services: why not the medical profession?
