Earlier, I said no.

Now I inclined to believe that Canada’s health was not helpful to the late Ms Richardson.  Ingrid Perez, Globe and Mail, offers a pretty good time line.  I am less than impressed with the four hours it took to get Richardson to a trauma center.

On the counter-point, Max Harrold, Vancour Sun, argues “Socialized medicine didn’t kill Natasha Richardson, says doctor.”

As for me, if Barack Obama wnnts to go north of the border to seek his medical care, such is his right and choice.   However, I say leave the Canadian healthcare systerm where it is, north of the border.

  1. The writer of the above article, David L, was not available to save Ms Richardson’s life.  He is ultimately responsible because while he was poking along elsewhere on that fateful day, he should have been in Quebec by Ms Richardson’s side where he belonged, saving her life so that the murderous Canadians could not have gotten their malodorously-incompetent Marxist mitts on her. I’ve heard, however, that Ms Richardson’s organs have been donated for the benefit of mankind.  I strongly urge David L and the rest of the American right-wing, who are always so concerned for the welfare of others,  can get her brain and give it to Terri Schiavo. 

  2. Now I suppose a person could find the fact that it took four hors for Mrs. Richardson to be transported to a trauma center to be acceptable.  Then that would be their choice.  As for me, I say we can and should do better than four hours. 

    I have not and would describe such a standard of care as murder.  It the citizens of a free country which consider it an acceptable stnadard, such is their choice.  It is not mine.

    As for the late Mrs. Schiavo, she was killed by her adulterous husband, his corrupt lawyer and a single civil court judge.  i don’t object to a decisiosn to remove a person from life support, as in the cawe of Ms. Richsdson.  I do object when the decision is made by reprobate who have vested interest in seeing the patient dead.

  3. Well, look, as long as we\’re in read that the problem is one of delay, because there wasn\’t anybody around to get her to the trauma center, I think it, not unreasonable to suggest that the Canadian health system is directly to blame for that, given their view about rationing of health care.  One cannot help but wonder if rationing of emergency services isn\’t the pattern here. 

    It will, I think, be interesting to see what happens when this stuff starts hitting civil courts in Canada.  Will, for example, the ski area operator be held partially responsible for not having sufficient health care facilities to accommodate such injuries, and if so will we see that ski lift operator turnaround and point to the local constabulary as not providing enough in the way of emergency services . 

    Trust me when I tell you the paperwork is already being drawn upon this.
