US health costs

Why would you pay the staggering amount of money that anything to do with health incurs in the US, if you can avoid it?

That was the thinking of Louis Drapeau, 60, when he was transporting his two elderly parents back from a trip to Florida recently. His Dad, who was 87, snuffed it en route.

So rather than see a sky-high bill from a US hospital Louis carried on driving back home to Quebec – and was stopped at the border crossing by suspicious agents.
