ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Ex-Gov. Sarah Palin has criticized Canada's health care program, saying the socialized system should be dismantled in favor of free enterprise.
But during a speech Saturday in Calgary, Palin acknowledged the irony of her family using medical care in Whitehorse, Yukon, decades ago.
Palin was a child in the mid-1960s when her family lived in Skagway, a southeast Alaska town near the Canadian border.
