WINNIPEG — Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister says people in the province have a choice: start paying health-care premiums or prepare for cuts to health services.
Pallister announced a series of public consultations that will take place in advance of next year’s budget, and a health-care premium is among the main topics.
Pallister says the premium is in essence a tax increase and would be tied to income taxes if it is implemented.
