Dear friend, Brian Pallister is, once again, placing blame on others for his own actions. The delay in getting the Hydro transmission line to Minnesota has to do with his PC Government ripping up a previously arranged agreement with the Manitoba Metis Federation (MMF) and not doing proper consultations with First Nations communities.

AMBULANCE FEES Pallister's PCs are doing a bait and switch on its promise to reduce ambulance fees. We obtained a copy of an invoice from a patient who was charged $340 for an ambulance transfer from the Birthing Centre to St. Boniface Hospital in June 2018. The PCs budget shows there is no change in ambulance revenues despite the promise to reduce fees. Pallister has frozen health spending at 2016 levels, and now he is forcing vulnerable Manitobans to dig into their own pockets to make up the slack.
