NDP Confronts Premier Over Health Reform Costs

The province's New Democrats continue mining for information on the costs associated with health reform. Leader Maureen MacDonald has tabled Freedom of Information documents that show the costs much higher than first thought. In the Legislature, MacDonald accused Premier Stephen McNeil of breaking promises on how to achieve cheaper health care.

McNeil says reform is already underway to cut the number of health authorities to 2 from the present 9 to achieve better front line care.
