Canada does extradite to the US on a case by case basis, if there is no 
death penalty (though there has been at least one exception to that 
condition too).  However, I can't see a Liberal government ever extraditing 
based on information obtained by farmed out medical records.  More likely 
the RCMP would come round for a polite conversation.

Unless they were french speaking immigrants living in Quebec.  I believe the 
law grants them a presumption of innocence *in spite of* evidence to the 
contrary.
