Being born in a hyper-capitalist society , socialised welfare has always been a bit of an alien concept to me.
Coming to Canada and finding out that you are required by the government run insurance company to pay a handsome sum for a health-insurance you can't opt out of.
Required by the education system to pay the bus-company for a transport pass you can't opt out of.
Required by the tax agency to pay for a pension fund that you can't opt out of.
Do you think the government is doing it as some sort of benevolent master who wants the best of everyone or do you think it's just a shameless money grab?

Single payer insurance is cheaper than individual purchasers so you should be happy. You're saving money.
Most schools have transportation agreements. If you don't like it you can do to a different school.
All of this type of program save you money so what's the problem?0
