Posted at 10:28 am on May 9, 2017 | Filed Under: News

NDP party leader Gary Burrill stopped by Antigonish NDP candidate Moraig MacGillivary’s office Monday to discuss his party’s 30 million dollar  allocation to health care.

With a promise of 5.5 million dollars going to doctors and primary care in the pictou county area.

 

The announcement came just after Burrill spoke in New Waterford earlier this morning about his plan to provide better dental coverage for children 17 years and younger.

Burrill also announced his plan to provide better dental coverage for children 17 and younger.   Burrill announced the initiative while touring with his Cape Breton Centre candidate Tammy Martin.  Burrill provided details of his plan during a brief campaign stop in Antigonish yesterday. 

 


Burrill is trying to reinstate and expand upon a coverage plan that the New Democratic Party had in place between 2009 and 2013 – the last time their party was in power – which guaranteed coverage for children aged 10 to 14.
