Ministre de la Santé


Hon. James McCrae (Minister of Health): Mr. Chairperson, I am pleased to present to this committee the Estimates of the Department of Health. They represent a very, very significant commitment to the health of our fellow Manitobans. I look forward to a useful discussion with my legislative colleagues about the priorities of the government of Manitoba with respect to social services in general and health services in particular.

I have to thank the Department of Health for the service they have provided throughout the year and, more specifically, just in the last 24 hours in helping me to get supplementary information to honourable members in as timely a fashion as we could do that. I have tabled earlier today in the Legislature the required number of copies I believe of the Supplementary Information for Legislative Review for this fiscal year.

I do not propose to make much further of an opening statement and look forward to the-- well, I hope I look forward to the discussion that will follow. We have had quite a discussion over the last 21 months or so since I became Minister of Health in Manitoba.

It has been a privilege to be able to serve in this capacity, a privilege to serve with dedicated people, not only in the Department, but throughout this province in the delivery of health care and health services to Manitobans.

It is a very big job but one that I enjoy doing and take very seriously, and I value the partnerships and friendships that flow from being involved in such an important activity, and that includes my colleagues in the Legislature and my counterparts in the other parties as well. We seem not to agree from time to time on things, but that does not seem to get in the way of what I would call a courteous working arrangement, which I enjoy, and I hope I do not do anything to spoil that relationship throughout these discussions in the Estimates.

So with that, Mr. Chairperson, I thank you for the opportunity to make a few opening comments and, as I say, I look forward to providing as much information as is possible throughout the course of this Estimates review.
