In order to save your life, you must leave Canada since the government-provided healthcare does not leave you any other option:
N.L. Premier Williams set to have heart surgery in U.S.
Newfoundland Premier Danny Williams will undergo heart surgery later this week in the United States.
Deputy premier Kathy Dunderdale confirmed the treatment at a news conference Tuesday, but would not reveal the location of the operation or how it would be paid for.
“He has gone to a renowned expert in the procedure that he needs to have done,” said Ms. Dunderdale, who will become acting premier while Mr. Williams is away for three to 12 weeks.
“In consultation with his own doctors, he’s decided to go that route.”
Mr. Williams’ decision to leave Canada for the surgery has raised eyebrows over his apparent shunning of Canada’s health-care system.
“It was never an option offered to him to have this procedure done in this province,” said Ms. Dunderdale, refusing to answer whether the procedure could be done elsewhere in Canada.
As Ed points out,
In this case, one of the governing elite that insists on imposing a single-payer system on the rest of the country has opted out of it when the going got tough.
And Big Government asks,
when the equivalent of a Governor can’t get a specific procedure, what chance does the average Canadian have?
None at all.
