Mr. Speaker, the federal government has a duty to pay at least 25% of health care costs.
During the last election campaign, the Prime Minister promised collaborative federal leadership on health care funding. However, he still refuses to sit down with his provincial counterparts to talk about it. Refusing to sit down with the premiers is not real change; that was Stephen Harper's MO.
The Prime Minister must take the time to listen to the provinces. Will he show some good faith and postpone the health care cuts planned for next year?
