Before deciding on Canada as your final destination, you might want to read up on the CSE (Canadian spy group) and Echelon (the international intelligence shared by Canada, US, Britain, the Aussies, NZ etc).

IF you want to find someplace free of all intererence, you might try buying a deserted island with no method of outside communications at all.

One does have to look at the aggregate after a while. Canada at least has legal pot, gay marriage, a working health care system, and competent doctors to staff it. And they are the source of "For Better Or For Worse."

In all fairness to Canada, their healthcare system does have some big problems (mainly of the financial sort). On the other hand, when I was sick with minor illnesses I never had a problem getting in to see a doctor (which was free) or getting a prescription filled (which was never unaffordable, even to a student). Everyone is entitled to basic health care. The problems come in when someone has a major illness. Too few specialists in some fields (there is a big braindrain to the south) have created very long waiting lists for some procedures.

It's the bit about how "everyone is entitled to basic health care" that does it. If you get basic health care, you're much less likely to have a small problem morph into a bigger one that requires a braindrained specialist.
