Canada`s new Health Minister is making it a priority to establish a new health accord, and do it by building a strong relationship with the provinces and territories.
Jane Philpott says the new Trudeau government agrees the accord is important, and that a solid relationship with the provinces and territories is vital to implementing the many aspects of the Liberal electoral platform,
Major legislative issues in Philpott`s portfolio include the legalization of marijuana, and the government`s repsonse to the Supreme Court ruling on doctor-assisted death.
The Liberals were strong critics of the Harper government allowing the health accord to expire.
