Shona Holmes, a Canadian citizen, tells the story of her life-threatening condition, and the failures of Canada's health care system. The treatment Shona received in the U.S. saved her life, but...

Such a pile of shit.

To all the people saying it was a benign tumor and wast life threatening etc. etc. EAT A FUCKING DICK. if you had any kind of tumor growing in your brain and you had the money to go to a different country and have it removed without having to wait months to do it you would. only fucking Canadian doctors would diagnose a tumor of the brain as not an emergency and then criticize the patient as "dramatic". fucking hate living in this piece of shit country paying craploads in taxes to take care of lifelong smokers and alcoholics with chronic conditions. this is why socialism fucking blows.

Well, I'm glad she's doing better.  However, I don't see how her situation has anything to do with the ACA.  As I understand it the ACA requires companies to provide more comprehensive coverage and encourages everyone to insure themselves and their families.  Congress killed the public option - that's the part that would be like the Canadian system.

What a pile of crap!  Her situation has NOTHING to do with the PPACA!  The Koch brothers own the idiotic group "Americans For Prosperity."  They will do ANYTHING and say anything that will make our president...remember him, the guy the MAJORITY of the country voted for TWICE...look like some kind of a terrorist.  They lament that they have not been able to impeach the man, of COURSE NOT, he has done nothing to deserve being impeached.  My cop) because he had not committed HIGH CRIMES OR OTHER MISDEMEANORS.  Those are the only two Constitutional reason for impeaching a president.  Of course, impeaching a president is not the same as finding him GUILTY.   An impeachment is only a charge of wrongdoing, it does not remove a president from office unless  he is found guilty by the Senate and even THEN it does not automatically remove a president from office. The Koch brothers and their wishes to turn this country into a Fascist state...yes, FASCIST state...have been stymied time and again and will continue to be thwarted. The enemies of our Constitutional Republic need to rise up and fight against the Plutocrats who first want to take us into an Oligarchy, which is is already heading into one, and then into a Fascist state.  They think that ONLY THE SUPER WEALTHY SHOULD HAVE A SAY SO IN OUR ELECTIONS.  They, the Koch brothers and their allies, are financial criminals.  They are our enemies, not a president who FINALLY has brought affordable health care to the millions of people who have had to do without because if preexisting conditions or other faulty reasons. The bitch in this commercial for the Plutocrats is a Canadian...how DARE she compare Canada's socialistic healthcare with our new private insurance health care insurance?  She is in league with the enemies of this country.  Get it?  I hope you do, our future is at stake. STOP WATCHING FOX!  Fox is owned, in part, by a incredibly wealthy Arab who has already interfered with Fox's coverage of what is going on in the Arab world.

There are pros and cons to EVERYTHING in life. The Canadian system provides people with more safety, while the American system provides more liberty. I for one prefer liberty to safety, but many don't.

As a canadian, this is not the true picture. "America for prosperity" sounds as lousy and shady is as it proves with this ad.

This Fat Swine is a Liar! I am Canadian. I have had famioly and friends with many illnesses and they have all been treated fairly and effectively. From Cancer to Kidney Stones. In fact they got early intervention because of the great Healthcare. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I am assuming the system worked since the Fat Pig can sit there and be paid to LIE through her teef! She should have used the money for LIPO!

She did not have a brain tumour per say... it was a benign cyst, even the mayo clinic corrected her. Obviously no one said that she would die if she didn't get treatment in 6 months... i can understand that patients worry a lot when they find out about it and not have it removed right away.. the point is, it wasnt a priority for the health care system as it was not deadly... She is a paid actor.. that is all

All the news that's fit to slant. I won't deny that she had health concerns, but it was the Canadian Medicare system that got her into the clinic in the States. I can guarantee you that she was treated with utmost respect and care in the US based, in a large part, on her Medicare coverage. We experienced the same treatment while travelling in the US, we weren't asked for insurance or anything, just treated like humans. You should do the same for your citizens.

The Canadian system isn't perfect - no health care system is. However what Shona is doing is exaggerating her claims to make a buck. See, she mortgaged her home for $100,000 to pay to have a benign cyst, not tumour, removed at the Mayo clinic and now she needs money to pay for that. Instead of trying to create a dialogue in her own country on how things can be improved, she catered to the lowest common denominator.

Utter BS. Canada's health care is far better then the US system.

either way life threatening or not she got treatment faster here in america. You cannot refute that. Her being put on a waiting list in candada was the problem and she is afraid of that problem happening here in america as well.

Many months or years is simply not true, the average wait time for a heart surgery in less than 12 weeks. Anyways, Canada also don't get free medicine that the doctor subscribe. (Check your sources) It comes naturally for 2 neighboring countries that citizens comes to and from the boarder for different reason. If your statement was true, hospital in Detroit or buffalo would be filled with patients from Canada, that doesn't happen.

According to Shona Homes' Canadian and American doctors, she never had brain cancer. She had a benign cyst which was NOT life threatening. Her US treatment was STILL paid for by the Canadian government. The fact that these people have to resort to such liars speaks volumes about their integrity.

This is damning. In 2008 I was in the UK and watched several incidences of how their Healthcare system was failing. Veterans were being denied treatment to save their eyesight because they were old and persumingly wouldn't be living much longer. Women with breast cancer were being denied access to the latest drugs for treatment. Socialized medicine results in longer wait times and less doctors which equals death or permanent disability in many cases.

Stop it. I know for a "fact" from relatives who reside in Canada, that you wait for diagnostic procedures in Canada. My brother's mother-in-law, waiting for nearly six months to get into a physical rehabilitation center from a nursing home. You wait for MRIs. 55% of doctors want nothing to do with Obamacare, and many will stop seeing Medicare patients. YOU need to open your eyes. As a health care professional Obamacare is devastating.

I'm sorry if this is considered "spamming," but Afp, you owe it to your citizens to present the FACTS!

Get the facts talk to people who know and do the research. I am a Canadian and I have had two major back surgeries with no problems getting any care I’ve needed. I know dozens of people and stories from them, with really no issues. As for the wait times, it is mostly in our emergency room and clinics. Mostly because people go in for the dumbest of things, instead of seeing their family doctor. I would not want to live anywhere that money rules. Going broke over care is so sad.

This is such BS. They are making it way more extreme then it actually is. Bah. Our public health care is amazing in Canada. People who need it the most have higher priority. Nothing wrong with that. Health care is a right. I have a friend who had a brain aneurism and almost died, but thanks to the quick acting doctors he's fine. My uncle had a giant cyst on his pituitary gland IN HIS BRAIN and thanks to our great health care his life was saved. Such BS. Such political games. Our system works!

What exactly is she saying here ? That her prognosis and treatment would have been impossible under Obamacare ? Well, she had a Rathke's Cleft Cyst on her pituitary gland according to the American clinic where she was treated. And this could have been treated in Ontario in due time. It wasn't life threatening. The fact is that she ended up paying when she didn't need to, a situation that many Americans could not relate to at the time the video was released.

Change is hard for people to face, but if you look at the data and compare global healthcare systems you can see that the US system needs changes. Canada's health care isn't perfect, but no system is. Also Canada isn't the only country with universial health care. Health care is big business in the US and that means profits over people. I don't want to put my life in the hands of companies that are more concerned with profits and earnings.

My mom has digestive problems. I did some research and sent her links about Irritable Bowel Syndrome. She said it seemed like a big hassle to correct. When she saw her doctor, she didn't mention any of the symptoms. A year later she was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. My mom still didn't mention her digestive problems. Is it going to be the system's fault when she develops the complications of untreated IBS? Also, if you don't like what the doctor says, get a second opinion.

Democrats Abroad reaction The Hamilton Spectator interviewed Kenneth Sherman, a leader of a group of American expatriates who live in Canada. Sherman challenged the accuracy of Holmes's account. He said the Americans who were members of his group, and who were living in Canada received care under the Canadian health care system and were considering sponsoring a counter-ad to rebut Holmes' claims. They said the health care they get in Canada was exceptional.

35 million Canadians and the Koch Bros. and their pimps have only one woman, whom they drag out every 3 years, to lie about the Canadian healthcare system. Ask Canadian pollsters whether Canadians want to give up their system, or trade it for the US...by 5 to 1 margins the answer is no...and never. But maybe Goebbels was right--tell a lie enough times, and it will eventually become the truth. Time will tell....

Are there flaws and miscommunications? Hell yes. Could we learn a few things from countries in Europe? Of course. But for what we have, I'm thankful for. I read about Shona's story and even the Toronto Sun (a CONSERVATIVE backer) did an article/interview stating that this isn't typical of our system. That what she had -Rathke's cleft cyst- is described as non-fatal by most Canadian doctors.

This woman is 100% lying and it is well known. She NEVER had "brain cancer" as she had previously claimed and then backpeddalled on. Her life was NEVER in danger from the benign cyst. The Mayo Clinic where she got treatment said her life was never in danger; there was no doctor who "told her husband she would be dead in 6 months". It's a 100% lie and this woman is doing it to replace the money she got from foolishly mortgaging her house to pay for surgery she didn't want to wait for.
