Ontario Health Minister Christine Elliott is promising to work with partner on improvements to health care in northern Ontario.
"I recognize that there are serious problems with health care in northern Ontario, some of the fly-in communities, as well. This is a priority for me," she told the legislature last week.
The deputy premier's pledge came in response to Keewatinoong member Sol Mamakwa, who says the province needs to do more, especially when it comes to health care in remote communities.
"Little children like five-year-old Brody Meekis have died from strep throat infections, that would've been cured anywhere else, and every single day I hear families, who cannot get the health care they need," he told the legislature.
Elliott also promised to work with Mamakwa on improvements.
