  • Canada's economy is not so good according to this newspaper-todays date.

    I get a lot of business from Canada. Therapeutic items for special needs children are hard to find and more expensive than here in the US.

  • They barely have a military and depend on us to defend them they have more money to spend on their Socialist way of life. Most countries that depend on us to protect them can afford to have national healthcare. Maybe we should pull out and tell everyone to fend for themselves and take care of our own and our economy would thrive once again.

  • Remember too they are part of the United Kingdom. I know they sorta have to answer to England but I'm not sure how much help England gives them.

    I checked this out, it's shocking! Even fairly small towns around here have medical helicopters.

  • Natashas Richardson was flown back to NY because the family already knew it was hopeless. They wanted her taken off life support with family present. I'm a critcal care nurse in NY. This happens to every day people all the time. Brain injury from trauma happens quickly. Had nothing to do with CANADA!
