Shona Holmes is a patient who fled Canada to seek life-saving medical treatment in the United States. Now, the Obama healthcare law threatens to make American healthcare just like the Canadian healthcare she fled.

Shona is a leading patients’ rights advocate and in Canada, she is the constitutional challenger in a case to give citizens the right to purchase private health insurance or even the ability to pay directly for her own care without penalty of going to jail. Ultimately, she is watching the United States head towards a government run health care system which will lead to the same awful cut backs, wait times, limited resources, and shortages in doctors, hospital beds, and diagnostic equipment that is seen in Canada.

Shona contends that America should not go down this road and it should preserve the best health care system in the world—the health system that she fled Canada for to save her life.
