Natasha Richardson and Problems with Canadian Health Care

When any young person dies of an intracranial hemorrhage, it's obviously a very sad thing. However, many people were uniquely touched by the death of Natasha Richardson owing to her popularity. There are now questions being raised regarding the promptness of her care particularly regarding the lack of a Medevac helicopter system in Quebec.

Will we be able to count on the mainstream media to investigate such possible inadequacies in the Canadian health care system? Wouldn't such debate be apropos given the Obama administration's commitment to implementing Universal Health Care, a system remarkably similar to Canada's?
