The Shrine Circus Returns to Stride Place

Enjoy the excitement of Shrine Circus, Wednesday, May 17!  Get your tickets today!

Manitoba's premier expects front line health care services will improve as a result of a sweeping mandate given to health agencies and authorities throughout Manitoba to slash 15 per cent of their management positions.

The province's regional health authorities, Diagnostic Services Manitoba, CancerCare Manitoba and the Addictions Foundation of Manitoba are under orders to cut the positions as part of their respective budgets for 2017-18.

Brian Pallister says the province is simply looking for ways to eliminate duplication and redundancy in an effort to cut costs and create a better health system in Manitoba.
