    This is still from a blog, and it should be noted that no cameras or recording devices where allowed at the hall she spoke at, so there is a strong likelihood this is exaggerated.
    is the calgary herald a blog?

    My first five years of life we spent in Skagway, Alaska, right there by Whitehorse (180km away. see map). Believe it or not this was in the 60s we used to hustle on over the border for health care that we would receive in Whitehorse. I remember my brother, he burned his ankle in some little kid accident thing and my parents had to put him on a train and rush him over to Whitehorse and I think, isnt that kind of ironic now. Zooming over the border, getting health care from Canada."

    Amazing she and her brother didn't die in the hands of our death panels!!!
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I think this is just another of her lies, or at least exaggeration. The Barracuda was born in 1964. How much of "the 60's" could she remember, anyway?

    Her family must have been poor if they had to go to Canada for health care.

    If you were born in Alasks and had to travel a few hundred miles for free health care in Canada or travel a few hundred miles for health that was going to cost you money what would you do

    Now remember the 60's did not have the MRI's or massively expensive chemodrugs that we currently have

    Blogs abuzz about Palin's use of Canadian health care

    http://www.cbc.ca/world/story/2010/0...h.html?ref=rss

    I'm sorry for having to commit a little hypocrisy by posting a Palin thread of my very own, but this is just too juicy to pass up.

    Sarah Palin's weekend admission that her family once travelled to Canada to receive treatment under the public health-care system she's so often demonized prompted skepticism and ridicule Monday among her critics in the U.S.

    "My first five years of life, we spent in Skagway, Alaska, right there by Whitehorse," the former Alaska governor and Republican vice-presidential candidate said Saturday night during a speech in Calgary.

    "Believe it or not — this was in the '60s — we used to hustle on over the border for health care that we would receive in Whitehorse. I remember my brother, he burned his ankle in some little kid accident thing, and my parents had to put him on a train and rush him over to Whitehorse, and I think, isn't that kind of ironic now, zooming over the border, getting health care from Canada."
    Looks like Canada has its own illegal immigrants abusing our health care too.

    Funny stuff.

    Re: Blogs abuzz about Palin's use of Canadian health care

    First off where is the link to the story.

    Secondly the 60s were not last week and the system is now completely different from pressures related to cost and volume.

    Then there are questions about the availability of medical treatment in Skagway almost 50 years ago.

    Alaska until 1959 was Russian territory it was not like living in down town L.A.

    Canada didn't have Socialized Medicine until 1968 when it began and started down hill from there.

    It's amazing that people love to play gotcha but then choose to ignore all the important information.

    Oh by the way can I play GOTCHA! now

    YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING.

    The U.S. Senate approved the purchase of Alaska from the Russian Empire on March 30, 1867

    Alaska - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    As you can see, Alaska was NOT Russian Territory. It was purchased from Russia in 1867 and was a US Territory (after being governed by the military) by 1884. It became a STATE in 1959.

    Even with your inaccurate information being said, I would question the availability of medical care in Skagway in the '60s. I'm not sure that Whitehorse was much better, but as the capital of the Yukon Territory, it probably was, so it would make sense to try to get the best medical care available.
