Ironical: Canadian Premier Coming to US for Heart Surgery

You know who has the best health care in the world? Canada:

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.

And guess who recommended that he come to the States for the operation? His doctors:
"In consultation with his own doctors, he's decided to go that route.".....

"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.

How about that vaunted Canadian health care, eh?

Thanks to Meg.
