The province has reversed its decision to make cuts to health-care services in Lewisporte.
An August announcement to cut lab and X-ray services - that caused major protests by area residents - has been reversed. The services, however, will be moved to the North Haven Manor.
Area MHA Wade Verge and Health Minister Jerome Kennedy were in Lewisporte today to make the latest announcement.

    Clearly no one really cares, especially on a Friday afternoon. That's why the government plans these things on Fridays.

    There should be OUTRAGE, but the silent, oppressed masses are either too stupid and/or too intimidated by this little dictator and his puppets.

    Shame on Danny Williams. Shame on us.

    Is there any wonder why people don't vote? If this is supposed cream of the crop, I fear we will be doomed forever! Why don't you go back on a few more decisions to get a few more votes, byes? Brutal and Disgusting! What's Mr. Verge saying today? Probably afraid to open his mouth!
