Health deal is building block
The Montréal Gazette’s MIKE DE SOUZA reports :
“The recent federal-provincial health accord brings Quebec one step closer to signing the Canadian constitution, Prime Minister Paul Martin said yesterday.
"This is the first time that premiers have actually signed onto the health accord. There have been previous accords but they have not been signed. There hasn't been the commitment that was in this health accord, and that's a major, major step forward," said Martin after touring the National Optical Institute.
"I would very much like to see Quebec sign (the constitution). I think we all would. ... I think that what happened with the health accord is a very important building block that shows how we can work together."
