And to add insult to, well...

...injury AND bullshit... apparently Mr Millions wants Canadian taxpayers to pick up the tab...

The impression Mr. Williams left, that the technique he sought in Miami is not available in Canada, is reinforced by his statement that he will consider applying for reimbursement for his medical costs in Florida.
I guess that's how you get to be a millionaire... by spending other people's money.

FROM THE COMMENTS:
Yeah. The guy I saw who mortgaged his house and went to Seattle to get gammaknife treatment for his brain tumor will love that.

PERSONAL NOTE:

Last year, we had to rescue my ailing octogenarian father-in-law and bring him out to live with us. We called the social services people to see if the VON would come out and read his blood sugar... and were told the nurses weren't equipped with, or even allowed to use glucometers.

They did tell us, however...if we weren't willing to subject a sick elderly man to a seven hour wait in the local E.R.... we could call Tele-health Ontario.

Maybe we should have flown to Florida.

It's always been my impression that you're supposed to apply to provincial health BEFORE you leave your jurisdiction, and that within Canada it's a no-brainer, but outside of Canada, it's iffy unless the same result can't be achieved here.

Sorry Danny, thanks for playing.

Would he get the whole amount back? How many people realistically have that option? I'd love to know what the reimbursement percentage is for going to Florida for treatment. I'm guessing Danny Boy can make up the difference. Can everyone do so?

That procedure IS avalable in Canada, and not with the lengthy wait time he says there is. So not only is Danny Boy an utter hypocrite, he is has no idea what he is talking about.

After seeing patients who have had to go outside our precious system to beat waiting lists (because they are afraid of dying or being disabled for years), or get cancer treatment not offered here, or seeing OR's closed down for lack of funding, having to go get live saving bleeding reversal medication for a patient myself because the union prevents anyone else from doing a porter's job, and having my nose rubbed in billions of dollars wasted in the health equivalent of the gun registry:

Danny Boy Williams expects that he might get some money from us all after he went outside of our precious system.

Yeah. The guy I saw who mortgaged his house and went to Seattle to get gammaknife treatment for his brain tumor will love that.

Danny-boy is a piece of string.

Wasn't Williams extolling the virtues of our great socialist health care scheme just a little while back.

Wasn't he saying giving Harper a majority would be the end of Canadian health care as we know it.

What a f----g hypocrite

oh, c'mon scott... details like that are for "the little people"... you know... the folks who didn't sell their interest in a communications company for hundreds of millions of dollars and then went into politics.

Yes

Us poor slobs are supposed to wait our turn in line, and hope we don't die in the meantime.

Guys like William's tells us our system is great.

Sure great for him, he doesn't have to use it.

We have no options or no choice.

Danny williams and guys like him make me wan't to barf.
