    Should companies operating these vessels pay at least part of the cost of these medevacs ? Some operators of some of these vessels lease these vessels for $500,000 per day and make enormous profits.

    Should it be expected that some emergencies will occur (and reoccur) in the course of doing this business ? Or should Canadian taxpayers foot the bills of having these employees regularly medevac'd much the same as, say for example, a one-time mechanical failure of an aircraft ?

    Sounds like someone is getting subsidized routine medical services to me.

    Am very thankful for our great search & rescue teams but am wondering who pays for these operations offshore especially for foreign ship injuries & rescue of sailors on sinking ships? Does the canadian taxpayer foot the bill or do those ships involved have insurance to cover such events? Our sarcs out of gander do a fantastic job.
