Comparing a small facility in Canada to a top hospital when you've got endless dollars is nothing short of idiotic.

What Brock really means is the US has the best health care if you're rich.

Don't like the health care in Canada? Don't go there.
Once you're a multi millionaire you're rich.

Rich enough to afford the best doctors.

It's better here too if you're rich...it's somewhat of an unspoken two-tiered system, there are private doctors & clinics, you can get sped through most any procedure with the money & connections...Brock just didn't know enough to have the hook up...guy probably never needed a hospital in his life until the past year.

judging by this, I'd say us canucks are doing ok at Number 8. Hmmm, look who is at number 50!!!!!! lol
Canada has a population of what, 1/10th the US...I'm not sure if that figures into the stats but it seems less people waiting for medical help could mean longer life spans

i listened to what Brock said and one thing i'm a little puzzled about...
he takes some serious shots at Canada's health care system...even going so far as to compare it to a third world country but when he was asked WHERE in Canada he was referring to he said he didn't want to talk about it anymore......why bring it up in the first place then Brock ?
dont bother answering that....i already know why you did it.

Brocks just a bull*******.(hope i spelled that right ) and heres how i know it....he said something about the hunting being really good up here (in Canada...try to keep up Dave.)and we as Canadians know without a doubt that just isn't true.
heck when you head out hunting around here you could easily go for seconds or even minutes without seeing anything worth shooting at (unless of course Brocks in town ) and it could literally take a couple of hours to bag a trophy buck around these parts,and tell me...who has the time for that ?

i would just like to say i for one am happy that your wife was here to save your life by throwing you in the car and driving a 100 miles an hour to the nearest hospital in the US... i would also like to take this opportunity on behalf of all Canadians to let you know you are welcome up here anytime...we would love to see you come visit us again...but maybe next time could you please leave your wife at home ?

How does that compare to the cost of living? Considering all of the factors do the doctors there get paid more than in the states? How is the research there? Is it well funded?
