By the same token, when some millionaire in the US goes to Los Angeles to get an operation you would conclude that New York can't or won't provide the service. Medical care is an emotional thing for some people. How many times have you heard a relative say, "He's got one of the best cardiologists in the country." Now do you honestly think that one of the best cardiologists in the country just decided to go work for some obscure hospital in Podunk Texas? Of course not, but it makes Ma feel better to think so. Population density is not a measure of the quality of healthcare available.
    How many US citizens cross the border for the sole purpose of getting superior Canadian care? I'm not talking about people visiting or working there that fall ill.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
