My wife, who is 72 years old, needed cataract surgery for one eye. The wait time in the Yukon is two years. In two years she could either be dead or blind in one eye and of course unable to drive, which is an important part of her life. We went to the U.S. and had it done this winter. A one-week wait and now she has perfect sight. The Yukon health system will not cover any part of the cost. We must all suffer together.
