BC woman files wait times lawsuit

Yet another Chaoulli-inspired lawsuit , this time in British Columbia.

I can still recall a despondent-sounding Kelowna, BC surgeon named Robert Ellett telling me about Ms Healey's mesenteric ischemia case: "Anyone with blocked arteries is not meant to wait six months to a year. I suggested that with the way things are in Canada, I would go to the States as well."
