As we reported yesterday Desnethe Missinippi Churchill River NDP candidate Georgina Jolibois along with Churchill Keewatinook Aski’s Niki Ashton committed to fighting to restore maternal health services for people in Flin Flon Creighton and surrounding communities. Jolibois said mothers should not have to travel south to give birth nor should other northerners for health care especially after bus service was cut in Saskatchewan. She’s also hears from seniors and Elders throughout the whole riding on how they struggle when they need to get to a medical appointment down south. She said first of all there’s no transportation to take them down south to get to their appointments and she’s heard throughout the riding for four years the need to have dialysis units close to home so families don’t have to leave.
Jolibois added she will work to have the bus service restored adding it’s very important that we in the north work to improve health services.
Other candidates in the riding are Conservative Gary Vidal, Liberal Tammy Cook Searson, Green Party Sarah Kraynick and Peoples Party of Canada Jerome Perrault.
