Oc­cu­pa­tion: In­cum­bent MHA Home­town: Cor­ner Brook Lib­eral, Cor­ner Brook Com­plet­ing the health-care cam­pus in Cor­ner Brook is the sin­gle most im­por­tant is­sue I’m hear­ing. The long-term care fa­cil­ity is near­ing com­ple­tion. Bids are be­ing eval­u­ated for the acute-care com­po­nent and it will be awarded in June. If we al­ter that sched­ule in any way, we could in­cur sig­nif­i­cant le­gal li­a­bil­i­ties. Say­ing the new hospi­tal won’t have ra­di­a­tion (treat­ment) is com­plete false­hood. The ra­di­a­tion bunkers are in­cluded in the re­quire­ments of the (re­quest for pro­pos­als).
