The Thompson Local News

The opposition NDP continued to press the Pallister Government last week on changes to the Northern Patient Transfer Program.


Flin Flon MLA Tom Lindsey tabled a freedom of information request in the Legislature, which he says shows that the government cut $1M from the transport program escort subsidy.


Lindsey added that the cuts were made at the Cabinet table, and that it contradicts the statement from the Progressive Conservative government that no cuts have been made.


The northern MLA said that the same request shows that the Northern Health Region was quote forced to find an additional $450k in savings from the program, which make it harder for northerners to get escorts on medical trips.


Health Minister Cameron Friesen responded by saying that they became aware of quote all kinds of abuses to the program, which is why the rules must be enforced to make sure that the program continues to be able to have the capacity to respond to those who legitimately need the travel subsidy.
