Election campaign

More promises on the campaign trail.

Stephen McNeil and his Liberals unveiled a pre-primary school program for 4 year olds. McNeil says that could save parents up to %$$10,000 a year in daycare costs. The program would encourage speaking, socializing and listening skills.

Conservative Leader Jamie Baillie says his Tories will address doctor shortages by spending $13.5 million over four years to recruit more physicians to work in underserviced areas. He would also double the tuition relief program to keep new family doctors in the province.

The NDP’s Gary Burrill says if he’s elected premier there’d be an end to over-crowding in E-Rs. The NDP would work with doctors, nurses, other health professionals and communities to deliver appropriate care.
