The article reports on the reactions of cardiac surgeons in Canada regarding the decision of Newfoundland and Labrador Prime Minister Danny Williams to seek mitral valve surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center Inc. in Miami, Florida. It says that the possible reason why Williams prefers to seek medication in Florida is due to the poor national data standards in Canada. Williams defends his decision saying that it concerns his health, so it is his choice where to seek the desired medication.
