The recent announcement of 65 new ambulances from the Pallister Government is part of their continuing work to improve healthcare for all Manitobans.
That’s according to Thompson MLA Kelly Bindle who said in his recent MLA report that the new ambulances, which are expected to be delivered to all five health regions in Manitoba later this year, will modernize the provincial fleet.
Bindle said that improvements like the new ambulances and the $5M annual investment for 60 full-time rural paramedic positions will build capacity, equip staff and bring in more skilled professionals to Manitoba’s system.
In the report, he also took time to thank two different classes at École Riverside School, Madame Oster’s grade 4 class and Madame Carrigan’s grade 3-4 class, for having him in to read to the students.
Bindle says that he also talked to the classes about the provincial political system and answered any questions that they had.
