Wonder what you would find if you frisked the Canadian health-care system?
Answer: Apparently, Canadian Premier Danny Williams doesn’t like his own country’s health-care system either.
Figures… CBC News reports:
Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams is set to undergo heart surgery this week in the United States.
CBC News confirmed Monday that Williams, 60, left the province earlier in the day and will have surgery later in the week.
The premier’s office provided few details, beyond confirming that he would have heart surgery and saying that it was not necessarily a routine procedure.
Deputy Premier Kathy Dunderdale is scheduled to hold a news conference Tuesday morning.
She’s expected to provide more details about Williams’s condition, as well as how the provincial government will function during his absence.
CBC reporter David Cochrane said Williams appeared to be in good health recently. He described the premier as “fairly active,” playing pick-up hockey at least once a week when work permits.
For the record, a Canadian Premier is like a Governor here in the United States.
Hmm? I guess the question needs to be asked: If the health-care system here in America is so awful compared to our neighbors’ universal health-care up north, why is the Premier coming here for surgery?
Waiting for a response…
