Canada fires back at Brock Lesnar after UFC champ slams 'Third World' health care

Quoteworthy:

"I take real exception to being referred to as a third-world country operation. We have state-of-art equipment here. We are hardly a one-horse operation. The attending physician was very qualified and very respected. He's been in the business for more than 30 years. And he has the skills to diagnose a condition such as diverticulitis without a CT scan. We have checked this particular health record and were are quite confident that the correct diagnosis was given and the best course of treatment offered. I wouldn't be so arrogant as to compare ourselves to the Mayo Clinic, they're the experts. But I really take exception to someone giving us that kind of media coverage for their own political reasons. Who knows, maybe he didn't like the bill."

Carmel Olson, CEO of Brandon's regional health authority, rebukes Brock Lesnar's assessment of Canadian health care after the UFC Heavyweight Champion was hospitalized during a hunting trip due to painful symptoms stemming from his bout with diverticulitis. Lesnar referred to the experience to being in a "Third World" and subsequently segued into a cheap plug for his own views on U.S. health care reform. Any MMAmaniacs out there North of the border that can argue for or against the pasty-faced champ?
