Our Health and Social Program Funding Guarantee
Since being nominated the Conservative candidate for our riding, I've been out to thousands of doors with my campaign team and the message is loud and clear - healthcare is one of the biggest concerns we hear on the doorsteps!
And just like each of you who have expressed your concern, as a father of three young children, and a son of aging parents, there is nothing more important to me than to know that when we need healthcare and social programs, we can access the programs we need.
So, it pleases me to know that if we form government on October 21 our party is committed to maintain and increase the Canada Health Transfer (CHT) and the Canada Social Transfer (CST) by at least 3% per year, as is currently mandated in legislation. In 2019-2020, the two transfers are providing $55 billion to provinces and territories.
As your Member of Parliament for Sackville-Preston-Chezzetcook, I will ensure that our party remains true to this guarantee and that Nova Scotians can count on stable and predictable health and social program funding.
