With both opposition parties and healthcare worker unions speaking out about the federal government’s health spending, the MP for Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo wants to set the record straight

Cathy McLeod disputes the notion that the government has seen funding drop off after allowing the Health Care Accord to elapse
