Statement by Jean-Claude D’Amours on the nursing shortage solution presented by UNB

October 18, 2019News

Today’s report in the media clearly shows the Higgs government is failing New Brunswickers in addressing our serious nursing shortage.


The University of New Brunswick put a potential solution on the table for this government on the nursing shortage and the post-secondary education minister refused to even discuss it with them. That is unacceptable.


Trevor Holder ignored UNB’s request to discuss the issue and then cancelled a badly needed program without consultation. That seems to be how this government operates. Under a Higgs government our nursing shortage and access to health care is only going to get worse. New Brunswickers deserve better than this.
