Clash Over Language In The Legislature

The Opposition Liberals are raising questions in the provincial legislature over what they deem vague language in the provincial health plan, which could result in rural hospitals being understaffed.

Health Minister Ted Flemming objected they just want to find fault where there is none. Flemming  received a warning from the Speaker of the House for calling the Liberals a bunch of Chicken Littles who want to declare "the sky is falling". The minister has been cautioned previously for his choice of words while answering questions.

The Liberals saying it's difficult to trust the PCs on healthcare when--in their view--the Tories have been sending nurses home and eliminating positions.
