In every other province, day to day expenses is the top issue, and health care ranks in at number two.

Currently, when considering both two top issues in nearly every region of the country – health care and the cost of living – respondents in every province canvassed voice less than 36 per cent satisfaction with their respective governments on each. Dissatisfaction on each issue exceeds seven-in-10 nationwide.
