Canadian Official Travels to US For Medical Care

Posted on: February 3, 2010

This story was covered by Fox News today.  I’m sure it will be ignored by the main stream media.  The  reported yesterday the following story:

Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams will travel to the United States this week where he will undergo heart surgery, according to the Globe and Mail. However, Williams will have surgery south of the border because the treatment he needs is not available in his province.

The Premier’s office did verify that Williams will have heart surgery, reports CBC, but added that it not a routine procedure. Deputy Premier Kathy Dunderdale is scheduled to hold a press conference on Tuesday to discuss how the province will be handled during Williams’ absence and provide more details on his condition.

“Obviously, it’s taken some time to have the diagnosis, progress, consultation with a number of medical experts, so it has taken several weeks. Ultimately we have to be the gatekeepers of our own health and he has taken medical advice from a number of different sources … He is doing what’s best for him,” said Dunderdale. The Deputy Premier added that she wasn’t sure if he is covering his own medical costs or taking government insurance.

The average wait time for surgery in Canada is 182 days.  No wonder their citizens come to the US for help.
