Her Kid Nearly Died in Canada
Anecdotal stories must always be treated for what they're worth--a single piece of evidence. Presidents like to single out a person at the yearly State of the Union address to gloat over when in reality the person is brought in as a pawn to promote an agenda. At town hall meetings politicians will cite Mr. or Mrs. so-and-so as an example of whatever for the same political reasons. I at least warn you to consider this anecdotal story about a Canadien woman jumping through hoops in Canada to get her deathly ill son seen by a physician before he spiraled down to casket fitting. Don't take this one example as the standard but remember it when a Canadien is paraded in front of American cameras to gush over how well the Canadien health care system treated them.
