Selinger promises more clinics

  • Print

Premier Greg Selinger took the NDP re-election campaign into the heart of south Winnipeg today, promising more family health clinics if he wins Oct. 4. He said the NDP will open three more QuickCare Clinics and three more ACCESS Centres in its pledge to ensure every Manitoban will have a family doctor by 2015 and take pressure off ERs.

The three new centres will be built in St. Boniface, southeast Winnipeg and southwest Winnipeg. The NDP said the new centres are in addition to ACCESS Centres already established in River East, Transcona and downtown and the two that are currently under construction in St. James and northwest Winnipeg.

Selinger and Health Minister Theresa Oswald made the announcement at Vic Wyatt House on St. Anne's Road in Oswald's riding of Seine River, where she is fighting Progressive Conservative candidate and high-profile former city councillor Gord Steeves for each vote.

They were joined by other NDP candidates in south Winnipeg.

The health announcement is also one of several the NDP have made this week throughout the province.

Selinger has used the events to attack the PCs on their health plan also rolled out this week, particularly on the math the Tories have used to explain how they will pay for it.

The PCs have dismissed the attack, saying it's another sign of desperation.

Later today, Selinger is to announce the expansion of the Lundar Medical Clinic and campaign with incumbent Interlake NDP candidate Tom Nevakshonoff.

The riding is another one the NDP fear could be in trouble because of ongoing flooding on Lake Manitoba.
