I would like to wish everyone in the riding a very Happy Easter!
I was delighted to join Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to deliver the news that we have an agreement in principle with the province to invest ***$4.81 billion*** to improve our healthcare system in Nova Scotia.
For the session, we had the pleasure of sitting down for a Q&A with students at the Dalhousie University Faculty of Health to discuss challenges with the healthcare system along with our priorities going forward.

Making sure Canadians have access to the health care whenever and wherever they need it is at the core of our government’s latest investment into our healthcare system.
Work is already underway with provinces and territories to help support access to quality family health services. Better access to health care services helps us live healthier lives and reduces the need for hospitalizations and emergency room visits.

The COVID-19 pandemic created significant challenges for educators who have endured school closures, isolation and constantly changing work environments while meeting the needs of our children and youth. That is why last week, the federal government announced $798,500 in funding for the CTF – FCE to promote mental health and prevent mental illness for essential workers in K-12 schools, including educators and administrators.
