Health Minister Must Stop Delaying Repayment to Heart Attack Patient on Hook for $118,000 Bill

Health Minister Kelvin Goertzen should stop dragging his feet and cover the exorbitant medical bill a Sprague man who suffered a heart attack and is saddled with a $118,000 medical bill after he was taken to a U.S. hospital, NDP health critic Matt Wiebe said today. He’s also refusing to say whether he will do anything to prevent other Manitobans from ending up with the same unfair burden due to a health crisis, Wiebe added.

Pallister Government Kills NDP Bill That Would Have Provided School Stability for Children in CFS Care

The Pallister government has voted down an NDP bill that would have gone a long way to providing stability in the lives of children in CFS care, Education Critic Wab Kinew said today.

“This bill would have ensured that children who’ve been taken into care would have been able to stay in the same school as before they were in care,” Kinew said. “It can be traumatizing for children who have left their families to also be taken from their familiar schools and classmates. Why would the government not want to reduce the stresses on children?”

NDP statement regarding MB Hydro's announcement

It’s always a concern to hear about major cost overruns, and it’s important for Manitoba Hydro to account for any pressures they may experience in construction through their annual application to the Public Utilities Board.

As the president of Manitoba Hydro said today, this province is growing. Manitoba must develop clean and renewable sources of power to meet that demand and into the future. Manitoba Hydro still considers the completion of Keeyask the best path forward and we agree.
