CMA/STATEMENT, Re: Back-Pedalling on Benchmarks Puts Health Plan in Jeopardy

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 13, 2005) - The Wait Time Alliance (WTA) acknowledges that Dr. Brian Postl clarified his position on the December 31, 2005 deadline and that he clearly stated that there will be evidence-based benchmarks in the priority areas set out in the September 2004 First Ministers' Agreement on Health.

The WTA regrets not including this fact in our earlier release.
