How Do You Say "Fail" In Canadian?

Ready the shocked face.

Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams is set to undergo heart surgery this week in the United States.

Why not Cuba? Michael Moore says it's the one of the best countries in the world to be in when you need medical attention.

CBC News confirmed Monday that Williams, 60, left the province earlier in the day and will have surgery later in the week.

The premier's office provided few details, beyond confirming that he would have heart surgery and saying that it was not necessarily a routine procedure.

Deputy Premier Kathy Dunderdale is scheduled to hold a news conference Tuesday morning.

She's expected to provide more details about Williams's condition, as well as how the provincial government will function during his absence.

Perhaps Ms. Dunderdale could then provide us with more details as to how well the government's "progressive" health care system is working.
