During winter, many Canadians - often retirees - flock to the southern U.S. for destinations such as Arizona and Florida.

We discuss this with Sara Allin of the University of Toronto's Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation; Scott Fairley of Campbell LLP; and The National Post's Tyler Dawson.
