Provision of Health Care Services by Private Facilities – Question Period

Dec 5, 2023 | In the Legislature

Mr. Love: — Mr. Speaker, if a person in Saskatchewan needs a new hip, they’re flying to Calgary. If they need a new knee, they’re flying to Calgary. If they need a breast biopsy, they’re flying to Calgary. If they need oxygen therapy, they’re flying to Calgary.

Now the minister has said, “For us, the cost isn’t the issue.” That’s great. If he’s got money to burn, will that minister consider investing in a fleet of Ministry of Health jets to better fly Saskatchewan people to Calgary?
