Vaccination rates have dropped in Nova Scotia, as Iain Rankin’s state of emergency election continues.

PC Leader Tim Houston’s Solutions for Nova Scotians is a detailed, costed plan that will bring record investments to fix the healthcare crisis, including:

  • Aggressively recruiting and retaining doctors;
  • Ensuring seniors have access to long-term care;
  • Opening up operating rooms beyond 9 to 5;
  • Providing virtual care for the 70,000 Nova Scotians without a family doctor; and
  • Removing the gag order on health care workers who want to improve the system
