By Janet Porter When they get sick in Canada they don't call a doctor, they call a travel agent. Canadian Rick Baker of Timely Medical, knows it well as he discussed on my radio program yesterday. Baker is running a "Freedom Train for Health Care" to accommodate those running for their lives from the Canadian socialist system that's killing them.
One of Baker's clients was an 8-year-old little girl who was losing her hearing because of an infection. The Canadian system told her parents they had to wait for treatment from January to July. She was to go the whole school year without being able to hear her teacher. Then the wait was until September. And then, they said the wait would be until the following April. That was when the parents of this little girl turned to Timely Medical who took her for treatment in the U.S. within a matter of days.

That's because the infection had spread to her brain and, while she lost all her hearing in one ear and half the hearing in the other, waiting any longer would have cost her her life. Thankfully, she escaped the socialist system that would have left her dead.
Another client was Lin Gilbert, who had chronic back pain for three years awaiting an operation that would allow her to walk, to work and to care for her young children. Gilbert, whose condition worsened to the point where she had to wear diapers, and became hooked on morphine because of the pain, was told that she "hadn't waited long enough" and that she "hadn't suffered enough."
She was featured on "Huckabee," on Fox last Sunday, and on Neil Cavuto's program yesterday. And now that her teenage son has been diagnosed with the same condition, she's fleeing socialized medicine for the country with the best health care in the world: the United States.
Canadians hanging by a thread of life are boarding the freedom train as fast as they can. But here's the downside: If Barack Obama and this Congress ram socialized medicine through here, there will be nowhere for us to run. In fact, the plan would make it illegal to do so.
