Mixed Views On New Drug Plan

The New Brunswick Drug Plan will start providing coverage to New Brunswickers on a voluntary basis starting May 1.

In the legislature, Health Minister Ted Flemming touted the success of the program with 600 people asking for applications--and he's hoping to see more.

But Liberal MLA Victor Boudreau says those figures aren't actually that impressive considering there are 150,000 uninsured New Brunswickers. He advises Health Minister shouldn't get so excited about a small fraction  actually showing interest.
