I suspect in Canada the waiting line for those surgeries are years long.No, tele, it's not like that. I know this first hand from the experiences of extended family and acquaintances. Canadian health care is not like the examples you point out re the warts of the U.K. system, and definitely not the bumbling, crafted nightmare the likes of Obamacare. Certainly, Canadians don't have as many facilities as we do in the U.S. It's not a market based health care system, and when the sh*t hits the fan in the U.S., well, the howling will begin. Socialized medicine, even under the best circumstances, will not provide adequate care a patient will wish to pursue. Maybe Michael's situation was that there was nothing that could be done. Sometimes an acute illness will arise where the patient, despite the best of care, will not survive. It's a shocking loss about Michael, but in many cases, a loss in life, such as Michael's business - source of fulfillment and purpose, does something negative to a person. I don't know, I'm just throwing out a theory, but in all this conjecture, a valuable human being was taken away. Let that be the thought, and the good memories people have of a creative, productive life lived while here.
