P.E.I. Opposition Leader Peter Bevan-Baker is calling out the provincial government for its failure to deliver a promised dental program for low-income Islanders.
The program would provide services for Islanders that fall in the gap between being on social services and not being able to afford private insurance.
Bevan-Baker said the Green Party first asked for the program in 2020, but it was understandably delayed by the pandemic. It came up again for the 2021 budget, and he said he was given a very firm promise it would be in the budget and launch July 1.
