Mr. Speaker, I again thank my hon. colleague with whom I had the pleasure of working on the health committee. I know his question is most sincere.
With respect to that individual, I believe it was freedom of choice. It was his choice to seek medical help elsewhere. I can also relate a story. My husband had a heart attack five years ago. I did not have to go south; I was able to deliver my husband to an emergency room. He was having a heart attack and they did not ask me what my bank account was. I was able to go in there with my only concern being to make sure my husband had the best health care service. I knew he had it because that is Canada's health care system.
