Singer Quits, Medical Tourism Wins

Longtime entertainer and 4-time Grammy Award winner Michael Buble, whose hits include "Haven't Met You Yet" and "It's a Beautiful Day" has put his career on hold to care for his liver cancer-stricken son, Noah:

"Going through this with Noah, I didn’t question who I was, I just questioned everything else. Why are we here? 'Is this all there is? Because if this is all there is, there has to be something bigger."

A selfless act by a successful musician. Yasher koach, and may Noah experience a full recovery.

Which is all very noble, Henry, but what the heck does it have to do with insurance, let alone medical tourism?"

Well, as regular readers know, we have pointed out many times over the years that CanuckCare
© may be free, but that doesn't mean it's terribly good. And how do we know this? Because folks with the resources to do so choose American health care when lives are at stake:

"Both he and Luisana put their careers on hold to be there for their son - they jetted to the US so Noah could undergo treatment for hepatoblastoma." [emphasis added]

Of course, with a $46 million a year income, he and his family can afford to do so. But what about average Joe Poutine?

Gives one pause, no?
