Health Minister Jane Philpott had some frank comments on the proposed rate of federal health transfers to the provinces and territories. She says when she sits down with her provincial counterparts tomorrow, she doesn't just want to talk about dollars and cents -- she wants to talk about issues like homecare and how to tackle the growing problem of mental health illnesses. (Philpott says she has a responsibility as the health minister for Canada to invest in health and to help improve health systems. And she says if she's going to ask Canada's finance minister for more money -- she needs to be able to tell him it is going to be used for health.)
