How many Ontarians have gone to the States for health care, Dalton? Does any Liberal know? Does OHIP know? How much has OHIP paid out to Ontario citizens in out-of-country health costs, and why? How many Americans get "free" health care in Ontario? How many fraudulent OHIP cards are still in circulation in McGuinty's monopoly, since 2003? How much health care fraud is there in McGuinty's OHIP monopoly? Why are Ontario patients often sent over the border to U.S. hospitals as a first response? (see here; here; here; here) Why doesn't the Ontario coroner's office investigate the circumstances of every Ontario patient who dies (see here) after being sent to the States for health care which coudn't be provided in Ontario? There would be case file of precedents for the press to behold.
My post Liberal Healthcare Duplicity details many Ontarians who have suffered in McGuinty's ideological health monopoly since 2003 - see here for the sorrowful tale.
Smitherman didn't even know who Suzanne Aucoin was, when his Liberals denied her cancer treatment here in Ontario. Jim Bradley pretended that somehow it wasn't his Liberal government that did this to Aucoin. NTW should ask Smitherman about Aucoin's mis-treatment by McGuinty's health monopoly, keeping in mind ombudsman Andre Marin's scathing indictment of what McGuinty's ideological government-monopoly did.
While they're at it, NTW could ask any McGuintyite to explain away their complicity in Shona Holmes' health care horror. NTW could try to get that great Ontario Liberal, Belinda Stronach, to chat about where she went to obtain part of her cancer treatment. NTW could look up the dozens upon dozens of Ontario patients which reporter Lisa Priest wrote about over the last five-six years, who had to leave Canada for health care in the States, for various reasons.
[Just for a quick reminder of the Incompetent McGuinty Liberal Government's's long-arc of health care disaster in Ontario, read one of Priest's many articles "Patients wait as PET scans used in animal experiments" (Globe and Mail, Nov.23, 2006) - see here. Be sure to read the comments!
Who will be asking Toronto mayoral aspirant George Smitherman, Ontario's incompetent health minister in 2006, about the issues Priest wrote of three years ago - issues which are still relevant and still unresolved in McGuinty's health-monopoly today???]
NTW could also investigate what is going on (see here) at the Ontario Health Services and Appeal Review Board, HSARB - this is another hornet's nest of government health care bureaucracy that could become a series.
