Manitoba Liberal Leader Dougald Lamont and Liberal Health Critic Jon Gerrard visited The Pas and OCN recently to hear concerns that locals had with the health care system. They held a hearing at The Pas Library on Monday evening and in OCN yesterday morning.
According to Lamont one of the concerns that people brought forward included, the high cost of travelling to Winnipeg for medical treatment and there is inequity with funding for people with disabilities on reserve vs. off reserve and he would like to have fair funding and provisions of services whether they live on or off a reserve.
He added that a lot of people are very frustrated with the state of health care right now.
All of these concerns will be brought to the provincial legislature on March 7th.
