Political Panel: Snowplows, Seniors, Insurance and Ferguson
With the deficit on the rise, the province is looking at some interesting ways of raising money and cutting expenses, including introducing highway tolls, reducing snowplowing and road salt, and increasing the co-payment ceiling low-income seniors pay when filling prescriptions. But the week wasn't entirely focused on finance. Michel Leger and his insurance working group recommend boosting the cap on soft-tissue injuries, and Michael Ferguson is the new Auditor General. Our political panel - Michael Camp, Lisa Keenan and Luc Desjardins - discusses it all.
