More than 250 dead animals have been identified, inventoried and photographed, the state said. They included animals with rabies vaccination and name tags, indicating they were pets[...]
Fairfax County Police Lt. Rich Perez said some of the animals came from that county and indicated that some of the animals found had previously been turned over to Family Pet Cremations.
The Chantilly, Virginia-based company has contracts with the department to dispose of dead, sick or stray animals, Perez said.
Walker County officials laid bare a landscape of decaying corpses at the dilapidated Tri-State Crematory near Noble, Ga. In the days that followed, 339 corpses that should have been cremated by Tri-State were salvaged from the crematory grounds. And Teri Crawford discovered that a portion of her brother's remains preserved in a small urn by his widow was adulterated with bits of metal, rock and silica. The sparkles seen by Crawford's friends were not his ashes, his sister said in a deposition unsealed last month.
The Canadian Health system is supposed to be a good compromise between the two, but as far as I can work out even here, most of the docs head South to work privately, as indeed do most of the patients who are waiting 6 months for a hip replacement.
Patients who normally would have waited an average of 47 weeks for an orthopedic consultation were treated in under five weeks.
As well, surgeons worked with a team of nurses and physical therapists to move patients through the system quickly and get high-priority cases done first.
Alberta's Health Department contributed $20 million, mainly for additional staff and operating rooms. The speedier surgeries did not result in other health services being delayed or cancelled.
It used to be more or less illegal for private healthcare in Canada, didn't it?
As always Quebec has to be different then the rest of Canada. But if the Bloc regains power provincially in Quebec expect them to overturn it quickly. The Notwithstanding clause can overturn it as well as it was deemed unconstitional. (That clause allows a party to temporarily override part of the Constitution or Bill of Rights in certain curcumstances but it comes with a political cost usually(unless you're Quebec of course :@@)
And the Bloc is very similiar to the New Democrats in ideology except for the seperatist issue.
