So Long Disney, Hello Canada

Well done.

I am an American living in the Toronto area. I have a child born here.

When she was incubating in her mothers womb, her doctor noticed I had
some discomfort sitting. It was a cyst in my lower back that I had for
years. While I worked as a contract employee for Disney in Florida,
countless HMO's did nothing for it. This doctor in in Canada picked up
the phone, said a few words then asked me if I could be available at 8
the next morning to have it out. Just like that.

I have had a stent put in my artery for a heart condition, diagnosed
within a week and placed in me in just 6 weeks---and that was because I
had business out of the country and was gone for a month.

Health care should never be an industry. It's a basic right of all
people on this earth.

If there was any good purpose for taxation, heath care is it.

Thanks for fighting the good fight.
