    N.L. Premier Williams set to have heart surgery in U.S.

    "I can confirm that Premier Williams did leave the province this morning and will be undergoing heart surgery later this week," said Mr. Williams' spokeswoman, Elizabeth Matthews.

    ST. JOHN'S, N.L. -- Newfoundland Premier Danny Williams will undergo heart surgery later this week in the United States.

    Deputy premier Kathy Dunderdale confirmed the treatment at a news conference Tuesday, but would not reveal the location of the operation or how it would be paid for.

    "He has gone to a renowned expert in the procedure that he needs to have done," said Ms. Dunderdale, who will become acting premier while Mr. Williams is away for three to 12 weeks.

    "In consultation with his own doctors, he's decided to go that route."

    Mr. Williams' decision to leave Canada for the surgery has raised eyebrows over his apparent shunning of Canada's health-care system.

    "It was never an option offered to him to have this procedure done in this province," said Ms. Dunderdale, refusing to answer whether the procedure could be done elsewhere in Canada.

    Mr. Williams, 59, has said nothing of his health in the media.

    How about them apples! I assume the 6 to 9 month wait under the Canadian so called free government system was a tad too long.:eek::eek::eek:

    FYI, Danny Williams is a stock raving socialist too. When AbitibiBowater shut down a papermill earlier this year, Danny Williams confiscated the mills hydro dams that were Abitibi owned.

    Why doesn't he go to France, G.B., Cuba, etc? This Socialist health care is free in those countries. ;)
