Health Care in Canada for non-Canadians?
If an American gets sick while in Montreal, what to do?
I don't think a Canadian medical facility will accept Blue Cross Blue Shield.
Can you pay cash? What would the prices be?
Not necessarily life-threatening ERs, but for example, something like an emergency prescription of antibiotics for cold, flu-type stuff.

Alcohol doesn't solve any problems, but then again, neither does milk.
Another perfectly fine reason to get the hell out of here next weekend
