Manitoba NDP calls on the provincial government to invest more in Northern health care, infrastructure, and education

With the final sitting of the Legislature before the fall provincial election beginning this week, Thompson’s MLA says the governing PCs are in -quote- “damage control mode”.


Eric Redhead says the Manitoba NDP will hold Premier Heather Stefanson to account, citing the closure of birthing services in some communities and the privatization of Lifeflight as examples of cuts made to northern health care.


A press release from the party says staffing health care facilities in the region is something they’re calling on the government to do, saying the Thompson General Hospital is seeing nurse vacancy rates are as high as 25 percent and personal care homes lack adequate staff for seniors.


This comes as the PCs are set to unveil their upcoming fiscal budget this spring.
