    You guys paying attention yet? I had shared this with you guys last week and now he's dead.

    This guy could have easily have been deemed "undesirable" by the state and they found any excuse to not bring him back, it's disgusting, and if you are an enemy to these socialist c suckers, make sure you don't get sick.

    Canadian stranded in Mexico for lack of hospital bed dies after return home: ‘I failed him’


    Stranded for a week in Mexico until the Ontario government could find him a hospital bed, Londoner Stuart Cline has died in hospital in St. Catharines, his family says.

    London West NDP MPP Peggy Sattler, who tried to help Cline’s family find a bed for him, said his death hit her hard.

    “I did not know Stuart Cline, but he was a constituent in London West and I failed him. He had a right to expect that our health-care system would be there when he needed it most,” Sattler said in a Facebook post.

    “The question that haunts me is whether Stuart would still be with his family if he had been transferred to Ontario last Saturday, when he was cleared for travel, instead of being forced to wait five days because of a shortage of hospital beds.”

    Sattler said Premier Kathleen Wynne must accept responsibility for creating a crisis at Ontario hospitals that are operating over capacity.

    “Insurers can’t locate a bed if a bed does not exist. My heart aches for Stuart’s family and I wish I could have helped them.”

    Terrible tragedy, and not the first or only case.
    Wherever these people were that didn't have adequate hospitals on site,
    need to have equal access, not just Canadians or foreigners who can be flown out. What about the local populations, what if they have a stroke or condition that requires this level of care?

    For each person who dies, where are the local advocates for health care access. Rally to raise resources to build teaching hospitals in every district in proportion to the population demands. if the rates of certain services goes up, connecting these programs through the medical schools can track how many staff or which facilities are needed in which areas to serve that demand.

    This is a sign that the resources are not where the people need them to be.

    This is why liberals argue to invest in medical and social services as part of national security and not just blow the budget on military but take care of the civilian population first.

    So no hospital beds at all? WTF? At least find him a bed somewhere in Canada. Sad that you can't take care of your own.

    I have a torn bicep which the hospitals basically screwed me over for, it required quick surgery. I know this has to do with the state deeming me their enemy. When you blow the whistle, you get screwed, especially in a protective socialist country that is happily fleecing America.

    So it has to heal very slowly, it was 1 step forward, 2 steps back. Many months, still not healed and I have to do a great deal of things with one arm. THIS is Canada, the same country far too many Americans don't understand.

    Healthcare in Canada is rationed. When hospitals are filled, beds are not given by need, but need and likelihood of survival. In other words, death panels.
    Despite all Canadians bragging about how awesome their care is...this kind of thing happens again and again.
