Canada’s premiers sent a message to recently re-elected Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Thursday: they want the federal government to increase its share of health care spending, and soon.
Premiers from 10 provinces and two territories participated in a Council of the Federation teleconference to discuss a range of issues, including the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic recovery. Health care funding dominated their discussion.
Nunavut is in a caretaker period because of an election in that territory and did not participate.
British Columbia Premier John Horgan, who is chair of the Council of the Federation, called the demand “urgent.”
