Premiers Meet In Winnipeg

Premiers Meet In Winnipeg

WINNIPEG - Manitoba Premier Heather Stefanson is hosting the 2023 Summer Meeting of Canada's premiers, a three day event which begins today in Winnipeg.

The focus of the meeting is expected to be health care, how to use new money Ottawa has promised to fix understaffed hospitals, shuttered emergency rooms and surgical backlogs.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau put the money on the table at a first ministers' meeting in Ottawa in February but that $46 billion deal fell far short of what provinces wanted.

Economic issues and affordability are also on the agenda.
