Why were the Canadian quadruplets born in the US?

Hmm, a little-reported fact in the identical-quadruplets story. I wonder what Michael Moore would say:

The Jepps drove 325 miles to Great Falls for the births because hospitals in Calgary were at capacity, Key said.

“The difficulty is that Calgary continues to grow at such a rapid rate. … The population has increased a lot faster than the number of hospital beds,” he said.

Two of the girls were to be transferred to a Calgary hospital later Thursday. The other two could be moved Friday if their conditions remain favorable, Key said.
