Mr. Speaker, the House will note that the minister avoided the question.
Everyone wants core services restored. For example, the Canadian Medical Association said:
...75% of new funding--be allocated to basic hospital services, physicians services, nursing and other services.
Canadians do not want new money spent on new promises and new bureaucracy.
Let me be clear to the minister once again. Will the government allow the provinces to spend the new money on restoring the core of health care services?
