My family was in a country that had free healthcare. They left the country as refugees, despote the access to healthcare. They were happy to escape the threat of violence and arrive in a country where you can work hard and make it. Health care wasn't why they came here. People come here to escape violence and to make a decent life. Not a single one of them feels victimized for not getting free things. The idea that they feel like victims for having access to *almost* everything other Canadians have access to is just nuts. Refugees don't feel like victims within Canada, and they largely understand that they must earn their keep and integrate into society before benefitting from it's perks.
