Canada’s premiers and territorial leaders say they stand to lose nearly 36-billion dollars in health transfers over a 10-year period if Ottawa proceeds with its disputed plan to alter how it calculates the payments to the provinces and territories.
Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger released the figures today on the final day of the Council of the Federation meeting in Halifax.
He also took a fresh swipe at Ottawa for imposing the controversial funding scheme without consulting the provincial and territorial leaders.
