    has it better. Their own docotrs feed them horror stories ( i've had Drs do this to me many times ) and they always say well have you lived there? "Cause my third unlce twice removed died from prostate cancer cause they wouldn't treat him for it." response nowadays is how do you know the moon isn't made of blue cheese since you've never been there?

      my wife is in part descended from someone who went North as a Tory to get away from the American Revolution (which is of course offset by the ancestor who was a Revolutionary War general).   She has twice been to extended family reunions on Prince Edward Island.

      Some of her Canadian relatives are quite politically conservative.  Yes ALL of them spoke highly of their health system.  

      It is an anecdote, or if you will, multiple anecdotes, and I am aware the plural of anecdote is not data.   Still, take it for what it is worth.
