Liberal M-L-A Says Province Won't Go It Alone

The province will not set up its own blood services in light of the local opposition to transferring blood production from Millidgeville to Dartmouth .........That prediction from the Liberal M-L-A in Charlotte County Rick Doucette who says the Conservatives are not adventurous enough to take that bold step.

He also says now they're in government, the Conservative M-L-A's haven't had much to say on this issue. Doucette calls their silence deafening.

Doucette makes mention of Environment Minister Margaret Ann Blaney who took then Health Minister Mike Murphy to task at the time, accusing him of agreeing to the transfer. 

Premier David Alward says a decision is close on whether the province will set up its own blood services.
