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.

"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.

Goes to show you that just as the ruling class won't send their kids to the crappy public schools that they have stuck us with, they will use our money to go outside of the country to get quality healthcare after they ruin ours.
Just like this guy!

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

RULING CLASS is the operative word here. We need to recover this country from our own government...kinda like 1776.

Canadian Stronach went to U.S. for cancer treatment in 2007
Liberal MP Belinda Stronach, who is battling breast cancer, travelled to California last June for an operation that was recommended as part of her treatment, says a report.

Stronach's spokesman, Greg MacEachern, told the Toronto Star that the MP for Newmarket-Aurora had a "later-stage" operation in the U.S. after a Toronto doctor referred her.

He said speed was not the reason why she went to California.

Instead, MacEachern said the decision was made because the U.S. hospital was the best place to have it done due to the type of surgery required.

While it is rare for MPs to seek treatment outside Canada, MacEachern said Stronach was not lacking confidence in the system.

Did they say: "not lacking confidence in the system?"

Because most people can't aford to pay for school twice! And we won't even have that option with healthcare unless you can aford to fly to Monoco or something.
