Paging Tommy Douglas

Looks like there's still a few bugs in the system...
Joan King, 74, had a life-threatening brain aneurysm on Sunday, but no doctor in the province was available to treat her.

After a futile check with several hospitals, the Mississauga woman had to be airlifted to Buffalo for emergency surgery.

King is one of thousands of Ontario patients who are sent to the U.S. for health care — at a price to the taxpayer of more than $100 million a year, according to the Ministry of Health.
Hang on... didn't Dalton McSlippery just commit billions of taxpayer dollars to building giant fans?
