Flemming and Gallant Duke It Out Over The Drug Plan

A lively back and forth on the new drug plan in the Legislature this morning.

Liberal Liberal Brian Gallant asking the health minister if the program is voluntary in the first phase beginning next spring.

He asking Flemming if its true in the second phase of the plan after April 2015 that it will be mandatory for New Brunswickers to pay into the plan.

Health Minister Ted Flemming says the first phase of the plan is voluntary where people can assess their drug use and the extent to which they have to pay and they have the option to make that kind of decision.

Gallant does say the Liberals do support the new drug plan in principle but they do have questions they think the government should answer.
