If Canadian Health-care is so good ...

Why did a Liberal MP travel to California for surgery? TheStar.com | Canada | Stronach travels to U.S. for cancer treatment As Mikey said (who gets a hat tip), I don't begrudge her the treatment. What I wonder about is the venerated Canadian health insurance. Why couldn't she get this treatment under socialized medicine? We are constantly told how wonderful it is. Isn't it wonderful?
Speed was not the issue, MacEachern said – it was more to do with the type of surgery she and her doctor agreed was best for her, and where it was best performed.
Speed is an issue in other cases.
