Did Canada's Universal Health Care Kill Natasha Richardson?

Did the fact that Canada has a socialist, government-run healthcare system --similar to the kind that President Obama wants to ram down the throats of Americans-- kill acclaimed actress Natasha Richardson?

The short answer is yes, it may very well have done so.

Regarding the case of the actress who fell on a ski slope at Mont Tremblant resort in Quebec, AP reports:

The province of Quebec lacks a medical helicopter system, common in the United States and other parts of Canada, to airlift stricken patients to major trauma centers. Montreal's top head trauma doctor said Friday that may have played a role in Richardson's death.
Socialized medicine....mediocre care for all, good care for none.
