How to Make the Right Argument for Medicare for All

I've tried to open some conversations about this with friends and family, and I'm not good at countering their points. Here's an example.

"Universal healthcare doesn’t work bud. Take a look at Canada’s healthcare options; in order to receive care in a timely manner, the majority of Canadians are paying for a supplemental insurance to help fast track their care. Who wants to wait 6 months + to be approved for a serious medical procedure? This unfortunately is the norm under the umbrella of that healthcare system UNLESS you’re paying."

This is from a person I admire, so I want to make a counterpoint in a respectful way that can maybe get them to question their position. I'm not sure if the point is actually true. Debate isn't my strong point, so I need to concentrate on it.

I replied that I understand there's no perfect fix for healthcare, but I need to offer a proper, feasible point.
