Canada's Prime Minister Goes to U.S. For Heart Surgery

Thought this was kind of interesting:
Quote:
ST. JOHN'S, N.L. -- 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.
I've seen some people laugh at U.S. and brag on CanadaCare... So I felt the need to bring this up.
I really like the part I bolded for you guys.
Note: I am strongly against ObamaCare... That is a whole other story..

It is simple. America has some of the best doctors around. It is no wonder why he would want to get care here, him being a prime minister he has the money. The health care system they have though is better off than ours.

Also the health care here is run mostly by the provincial level of government meaning Ms. Dunderdale could easily just not have known whether or not other provinces offer this (I'm assuming here) specialized surgery.

The only reason I can see this is because some stuff that doctors do is only in certain places and this was prob. somewhere in the USA so he couldn't do it in Canada.
