Premiers move meeting on federal health care funding offer to Monday
by The Canadian Parvasi
The Premiers’ meeting that was scheduled to happen on Friday to discuss Prime Minister Justin Trudeau proposed 10-year healthcare plan of the federal government, which proposed an increased $46.2 billion in new healthcare spending has now been postponed to Monday.
“It’s significantly less than what we’re looking for…We just received that proposal today…We’ve only had it for a couple of hours”, Stefanson has previously stated about the proposal, adding that the provinces would take time to examine the proposal before passing a judgement about the same.
The premiers, who had been demanding the healthcare funding meeting for the past few months, were advocating for a $28 billion increase to the CHT per province per year.
