Flin Flon MLA Tom Lindsey says the Manitoba Throne Speech was a repeat of old ideas. He says there was one mention of the north. He explains about the only thing they talked about is a onetime only creating 20 nursing spots noting it’s a good stop gap measure but it’s not a long term plan to address health care or the absence of health care we’ve seen in the north. He adds he thinks it was a lot of nothing, a lot of re-hashing ideas that have already been presented either by Pallister, Goertzen or Stephanson prior to the Throne Speech so he really doesn’t think there was anything new or exciting and no real bold vision for what the new Premier is going to doing differently than the old Premiers.
The Throne Speech kicked off an eight day fall legislature sitting.
