I bet her outcome would have been different if she had her accident in the US. Where should would have gotten quality health care immediately instead of waiting almost 10 hours. Socialized medicine my a**.
My condolences to her family.

The Country she was injured in had nothing to do with her death. Educate yourself more on the circumstances before you try to use someone else's personal tragedy as ammo to attack a whole country. She never waited at a Canadian hospital.

She refused treatment for 2 hours before being taken to a Canadian hospital and then flown to Manhattan.

I know much of the details AND I am an EMS professional. I know what is and isn't important. With her situation time was of the essence if she had access to a CT that wasn't a 2 hr Ambulance ride away she "may" have survived.

Also if you took it as an attack on Canada I apologize. It was more of an attack on the President and the Dems who want to force socialized medicine on the citizens of the USA. I'm sorry you can keep it.

Just an FYI I was engaged to and lived with a woman from Toronto for several years and there were several reasons she lived in the states Health care, Taxes and Weather. So while I may not be an expert I am certainly NOT uniformed.
