Lindsay McCreith

From the National Review of Medicine.

Asked whether a similar privatization push could happen in Ontario as a result of the recently-filed lawsuit by cancer patient Lindsay McCreith — which cites the 2005 Chaoulli decision as precedent (see "Chaoulli copycat cases crop up across country," Jan 15, 2007, Vol 4, No 1) — Mr. Michael McBane, the national co-ordinator of the Canadian Health Coalition says, "The Ontario government is not the Quebec government — the Ontario government believes in medicare. The Quebec government does not seem to."

Re your following brain tumor/private care story. It would be more accurate to insert “allegedly” forced out of province care. No proof yet that treatment not available in timely fashion in Ontario. This will be a very interesting story and may be very influential case, so I think your reporting should be accurate.

If Mr McCreith had only known in time, but he has in his possession, a PROVINCE OF ONTARIO Power of Attorney to bind the CROWN in Right of ONTARIO in contract, and could have simply issued a Promissory Note to have the PROVINCE OF ONTARIO pay the bill, and not have to go through all this over legal mumbo-jumbo. If anyone thinks this is just a pipe-dream, I challenge anyone to DISPROVE, not just voice on opinion, what I have written here. If Mr McCreith is carrying a PROVINCE OF ONTARIO Birth Certificate, he has all he needs or needed to have this cared for immediately, and at no cost to him. GO AHEAD: PROVE me wrong!
Or maybe you could ask some questions.....

This is a duplicate to a unanimous blog I posted previously. I resubmitted so that if questions are to be asked, the questions will then be aimed at the right person. Thank you....
