VIDEO: McNeil: Health Boards Would Be Cut Under Liberals

The province's Liberal Leader reiterated his plan to eliminate a majority of health boards if his party was in power. Stephen McNeil spoke Wednesday at a luncheon of about 45 local business owners, political figures and officials at the Best Western in Cookville. He says a Liberal government would get rid of district health authorities except one board for the IWK and another for the rest of the province.

McNeil says the initiative would help take dollars out of board rooms and administration and put it back into frontline health care. He believes it could save around $10-million. McNeil also touched on other subjects including the Muskrat Falls power project and economic development.
