Pallister’s Political Timeline Damaging Health-Care System: NDP Calls for Halt to Ill-conceived Cuts

Today’s WRHA announcement is an admission they are not prepared for the closure of the Victoria emergency care room and the Misericordia urgent care centre, said NDP Health Critic Matt Wiebe, who called on the government to halt this politically driven exercise.

“Day after day, it is becoming clearer that the government’s agenda is to cut costs not improve patient care,” said Wiebe. “They cut services first and figure out their plans later.”

Why Cuts Hurt Education

Dear friends,

I'm writing you today about the changes happening in our province. Like many parents, I'm concerned about the cuts being made to public services that families like mine count on. In particular, as a music teacher, I'm really starting to see first-hand how Brian Pallister's agenda is having a negative impact on public education and our childrens' future. 

As you may have heard, the Pallister government’s 2017 budget does not include nearly enough funding to cover inflation and the growing needs of the students in our schools.
