Liberals cut $279,000 from long term care on the South Shore

August 12, 2016


For Immediate Release

BRIDGEWATER – The McNeil government has cut more than $279,000 from 13 nursing homes and residential care facilities on the South Shore. Across the province, the McNeil government made $3.4 million in cuts to long-term care facilities across the province.

“The true meaning of Stephen McNeil’s cuts and fiscal restraint is that residents of nursing homes and care facilities are forced to make do with less,” said NDP Leader Gary Burrill.

The full list of facilities on the South Shore which are facing cuts is below. The cuts to facilities were discovered through a Freedom of Information Act request from the Nova Scotia NDP Caucus.

“Yet again, the Liberals have cut funding for Shoreham Village after committing to continue the NDP plan to rebuild this important facility in the last election,” said MLA for Chester-St. Margaret’s Denise Peterson-Rafuse. “Stephen McNeil and his government just cannot be trusted.”
