The journalist Hélène Mercier was invited on the show L’heure de pointe Toronto and Radio Canada cet après-midi to discuss the clash between the provincial health ministers that are requesting increased funding and the federal government that is seeking to reduce the amount distributed to the provinces for health care. The federal government is furthermore creating guidelines for each province’s health spending scheme in order to focus the spending on predetermined areas of health care. Amélie Quesnel-Vallée was then interviewed and explained why the desire to create federal overarching priorities for health care investments is indeed justified.
