Premiers meeting in Victoria to focus on health care expenses

Premier John Horgan says the premiers and territorial leaders will be expressing their “profound disappointment” at the lack of leadership from the federal government over health care costs.

Horgan is hosting a two-day meeting of the leaders in Victoria, which opens today (Monday).
