Health care will be the main focus of meetings in New Brunswick on Monday.

Ontario’s Doug Ford is meeting with premiers of the Maritime provinces. They will focus on health care pressures, staffing shortages and long waits for surgeries due to the pandemic.

Ford arrived in Halifax on Sunday to meet with Premier Tim Houston.

Health Minister Michelle Thompson said Friday that Nova Scotia is considering private clinics to help clear the province’s surgical backlog.

As of May, there were over 25,000 people waiting for surgeries in our province.
