    I work at the Kaye Edmonton Clinic and we have so how many people come from BC, SK, MB come here for treatment. I'd say a solid 5-7% of my patients are from out of province. Next, I would say 20-25% of our patients are not from Edmonton area and are from other areas of the Alberta. We see roughly 300-325 patients per week.

    I also operate 2 Airbnb's and I would say each have 1 booking every other month for someone here for medical reasons.

    I would say it's not a farfetched idea.

    This is more about R&D, innovation and commercialization...

    Some of the procedures we do in Edmonton are not offered in other cities and were created here. The R&D creates physical treatments for people. We always talk about the spin off of the oil industry - what I mentioned is spin off, unless we're not at all interested in this kind of thing.

    We need to expand our pharma manufacturing base.
