Alberta Premier Alison Redford has vowed to build a long awaited cancer centre in Calgary that would cost about $1.3-billion. Ms. Redford announced the news on Friday at Foothills Medical Centre. She said a new cancer care is the need of Calgary with the increased population and aging Tom Baker Cancer Centre. The announcement was made only few days before the budget of the province.
In a recent report, Progressive Conservative Leader Alison Redford has made it clear that there is a dire need to bring those who are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder to come under the Workers' Compensation Board. In case it can be legalized, then Alberta would become the second province in Canada to activate such law.
