What I've seen so far seems only based on the assumption that he would have utilized Canadian doctors if he had that option but we've yet to hear specifically that he was refused treatment in Canada from a source close to him.

Dr. Barry Rubin, the head of vascular surgery at Toronto’s University Health Network, says it would have been safer to leave the clot alone. He also said he treated an MS patient recently who had blood clots after receiving neck vein surgery in Mexico.
Mostic's death is sad but not unexpected because there's not enough scientific evidence to suggest the invasive procedure is a safe and effective way of treating MS, said Dr. Paul Hébert, editor in chief of the Canadian Medical Association Journal.

But when his symptoms worsened he was rushed by ambulance to St. Catharines General Hospital. A blood clot had formed around the stent, but he wasn't treated for his complications at that time.
The hospital declined comment on the case.
anticoagulants and blood thinners do not dissolve clots they just thin the blood so the body can dissolve them, drugs like aspirin also make the blood less sticky but drugs used in thrombolysis actually dissolve the clots.
