WINNIPEG – Manitoba Liberal MLA for Kewatinook, Judy Klassen, is calling on the Minister of Health to institute an Indigenous Health Advocate within Manitoba’s health care system.
“I stand here today, willing and wanting to work with this government to find solutions to the many issues Indigenous people face when navigating Manitoba’s health care system,” said Klassen. “An Indigenous Health Advocate would be our voice within the health care system. They would be our support system.”
Indigenous Manitobans lost a major support system when the Pallister government cancelled the Northern Patient Escort Program.
