4 brave young Canadians eh?

Recommended Posts

That's awesome, I'm sure that the parents of them couldn't be prouder.  We need more teens like that, gives hope for the future.  Hats off to those boys!

Talk about irony...here in Abilene just last week there was 4 teenaged boys going to a skateboarding park and noticed smoke coming from a attic vent in a house. They went to the door but got no response. When they looked in a window they saw a elderly man on the floor. They pushed the door open started dragging him outside when he said please help my wife She's in her room. Two boys drug him outside while the other two went and carried her outside. The couple survived but the house burned completely down. lf it hadn't been for those 4 boys the elderly couple probably would've died. Later the police chief jokingly told the boys "you did two things wrong. First, you broke the door open. And second, all 4 of you went inside a burning building. But l don't think anyone here will object."

I suggest you spend some time reading Small Dead Animals before making that decision

Ok.....50% of your income even if you dont go to college and when you come to my local hospital and have operations done with cash or private insurace you pay for since you cant wait 4 months for a stint or mri.

I didn’t say it’s how I want things, I’m just saying I think they get something for their 50%. Which is more than I can say about a lot of what I pay in, and probably you too

we don't, wait times are massive if you go to ER with anything less of serious life threatening immediate danger. very few have a family doctor and it wont get better soon.

if you suggest a two tier system everyone gets their hackles up and start shouting you down because you obviously don't care about the poor. if you need surgery you are put onto a wait list that can take years to complete

 

very good for those kids, definitely raised right and are very respectable youths

Have heard sad things about healthcare up der.

Brother used to live in the Philippines. ( always hafta spell that word 3 times to get the right # of "L"`s and "P"`s in it.

He said a doctor visit took 8 to 10 hrs.

They have big buildings where you stand in line for hours, in the hot sun, tell the receptionist what is wrong, she sends you to the heart/lung/injury/foot/leg/arm line.

Then you stand, unless you bring a lawn chair, in another line for hours.

Nurse looks at you then if she/he feels it necessary to see a REAL doctor, you go to ANOTHER line.

Sad system for sure.

man how can a compliment by Seth turn into BS

in my area its noting to go 10 years without seeing a snake and then its a garter snake...sure theres areas with snakes but the country is not snake infested 🙄long waits in ER yep but I figure its to deter people from abusing the system- there must be a deterrent to run to ER for a runny nose etc. My daughter works as a nurse in ER - any middle aged man who complains of chest pains is admitted immediately! at all hospitals here! 4 months for a stint maybe but not the rule. long waits for knees, hips etc but hey its free ! 2010 my sister under went 13 hours of surgery for a brain tumor and spent most of that year in intensive care due to complications including meningitis . FREE! how would she make out in YOUR country! but in fairness nothing is perfect but I am happy. I also do not know of anyone without a Dr but apparently it is a problem for some folks

 The biggest problem we have is the PM who is the worst in our history who has an average at best IQ - and all the lefties that want something for nothing  vote for him 😫. I don't know everything about my country but I know more than Beale or Troy and conversely I expect they know more about their country than I know about theirs. Beale loves to stir up chit. Maybe he could use his vote in his country to fix their problems with his taxes, And the sad part is no one cares what happens in his country that is on the other side of the planet .Remind me who is your Prime Minister?  

 Funny thing is any of the foreigners  who diss Canada would run here if they were forced to flee their country. And in fairness I would seek safety in my countries brother/sister - the good Ole USA 

 dissing someone's country is not necessary on a tractor forum and that's what separates the man from the boys IMHO

I hear you, wife had some health issues about 2 months ago & her regular doc sent her in for MRI in RedDeer. Within a week, specialist set up appt to see her. Did his thing & made arrangements for appointments in Foothills in Calgary within 2 weeks. We went to foothills on July 2nd, spent about 3 hours where she got an exam, talked to doctor & surgeon & she’s booked in first part of Oct for surgery. And yes, we didn’t pay anything for this. Far as our PM, we do need a replacement... but that’s for another forum .
