Niagara-on-the Lake, Ont. — Canada's premiers are expected to unveil a proposal today to change and enrich health care in Canada with national goals, while ensuring that provinces can deliver services in different ways, unencumbered by federal conditions.
The premiers emerged from a day-long meeting yesterday with a plan to take to their three-day televised meeting in September with Prime Minister Paul Martin, whom they see as having little choice but to accept their program for change.
