It's official! Sicko is bringing his carbon spewing entourage to London Ontario

Restaurants across the city are anxiously awaiting Micheal Moore's arrival this coming Friday.

London is getting the first big look at Sicko on Friday night at 7 p.m., The Free Press has learned.

Controversial Michigan director Michael Moore's much-anticipated documentary on the U.S. health-care system will be shown at SilverCity (Masonville Place) in a significant first-look North American screening, well before its general release or screenings at galas elsewhere.

The film's Canadian distributor, Alliance Atlantis, is calling the London screening "the Canadian premiere screening."

Moore and others involved are to be here in London during the afternoon on Friday. The screening will be followed by a private reception.
I'm stepping out for a bit, so leave your impressions of a media created dignitary in comments here.

I gather it's more of the same one-sided warped opinion from Moore - U.S. Baaaaaad, Canada Gooooood!

I just read a letter to the editor in the freeps a couple days ago about a diabetic man (Londoner) with high blood pressure whose doctor just dumped him because he questioned his medication and/or treatment (I forget which). Good luck to him finding another doctor to take him on. I'll bet Moore leaves out these issues and more with socialist medicine.

And anyone who believes we don't have two-tier healthcare now is fooling themselves. I know of a retired dental surgeon from out west who needed angioplasty. There was a waiting list, but because he knew a heart surgeon here in London he jumped to the head of the line and had zero waiting time.

One question: if Moore thinks Canada is so superior to the U.S. - as in better healthcare, gun control, etc. - why doesn't he move here? Ok, ok, I know shutup; don't give him any ideas.
