Blogging from Arlington, Virginia
Shona Holmes, the well noted Canadian citizen talked about her expereinces with the Canadian health care system. Holmes said that the waiting for care in Canada is: “like waiting in a soup line.” Holmes stated that: “when you face that feeling is know when face the cracks.”
Holmes said she fought the Canadian Government for four years on getting proper reimbursement of her health care. Holmes said that the public option is no way out in Canada for their citizens. Holmes said that specialty doctors like surgeons in Canada are only slotted ten hours a week to do surgeries. Holmes said that the Canadian Government is doing a major disservice to its citizens to wait for critical treatments including MRI’s and cancer treatments.
Holmes also fired back at the Canadian and US Media who have tried to discredit her since her television advertisement over the summer.
