Health Minister Says Decisions Are Being Made For The Right Reasons

Provincial Health Minister Ted Flemming says he has taken the politics out of healthcare decisionmaking. 

He says it's up to the Anglophone and Francophone Health Authorities to decide what their lists of priorities should be. Flemming says  those priorities can be switched around depending on circumstances and points to the breakdown of a mammography machine at an unnamed hospital as an example.

Flemming maintains decisions in health are being made for clinical reasons and not because they might benefit M-L-A's on the government side get re-elected.
