No blood? No surgeries.

So much for their waiting list for surgeries.
Today, Canada's national blood supply is just under two day's worth.
But I don't know why this is a problem; when Canada get's low on neonatal ICU beds, they just use American neonatal ICU beds. When they get put on a Canadian waiting list for surgery or an MRI or CT scan, they just come to the US and get it here. Makes me wonder why the superior Canadian system can't just access the blood supply from the inferior American health care system.
