interest,” says France Marquis, President of NANB. “Mr. Losier will continue to advocate on behalf
of New Brunswickers as the health care system faces significant challenges including access to
care and the protection of the publicly funded, not-for-profit health care system in today’s changing
economic, political and social climate.”
