EDMONTON - The Health Sciences Association of Alberta will welcome back four incumbents and welcomes two new board members following the conclusion of the recent elections.
Alberta's budget is the best that can be hoped for considering the challenges facing the province, says the Health Sciences Association of Alberta. It shows a great deal of fiscal restraint without trying to fix the problem on the backs of front-line health-care workers or patients.
Alberta Labour Minister Christina Gray says the opposition is fear-mongering by suggesting Albertans could be put at risk by not formally listing EMS staff as essential workers in a new bill giving public servants the right to strike.
Opposition members are misleading Albertans with misinformation about potential risks as a result of essential services legislation, says Health Sciences Association of Alberta (HSAA) Vice-President Michael Parker, a 23-year Emergency Medical Services (EMS) veteran.
