United Nations ruling

In July, the United Nations Human Rights committee agreed that Canada had violated Toussaint's rights by denying her access to essential healthcare.  

The United Nations gave the federal government 180 days  to review its legislation on access to health care.

"No matter what others think, everyone has the right to health care," Toussaint said in a written statement to CBC.

I wonder if this will have any impact on Canadian Citizens living abroad?
