My canadian cousin has a very rare and particularly nasty form of juvenile arthritis, he's had since, well, he was a juvenile.

The care he has received has been mindboggling. He has had several cutting edge treatments, countless specialists, gobs of new and expensive drugs, and a free ride to college.

Its difficult to tell how much the treatment has helped, because he's constantly in pretty bad shape from the JRA, but that kind of treatment in the US would only come for somebody with a well-heeled insurance policy. His folks aren't well-heeled.

Woot to Canada. If it weren't so damn cold...

The western side has pretty mild weather, at least along the coast, and British Columbia is reportedly one of the most beautiful places on earth...

British Columbia is one of the places that looks like Norway, New Zealand being the other.

I haven't gotten to visit BC yet, but I have been to Norway, and that is one of the most beautiful places on earth. I can close my eyes and see the fjords intersecting with the mountains and even the memory of the image makes my knees go wobbly...
