BC Health Care compared to Quebec (Vancouver)

Hi there,
Does anybody know how the BC's health care compares to the Quebec's, in terms of waiting times?
I live in Montreal and recently I got a prescription for a MRI and a referral to a Neurologist. The waiting time for the MRI was 6 months in the public system (one hospital gave me 1 year!), and I ended up doing it in a private clinic. For the Neurologist, I sent the referral to 3 clinics, 1 gave me an estimated waiting time of 8 months, in the second one the waiting time is 1 year and the third clinic hasn't answered me yet.
Are the wait times similar in BC?
Thanks a lot,
Fabio.
