WINNIPEG — 154 new medications are now covered under Manitoba’s Pharmacare Program, including coverage for a drug used to control high blood sugar.
“We are continuously working to add drugs to the pharmacare program in a timely manner to ensure Manitobans have access to medications that offer important treatments for many different illnesses and treatments at a more affordable price,” said Health, Seniors and Active Living Minister Cameron Friesen.
A day after recreational marijuana was legalized in Canada, RCMP in Manitoba have arrested a man for driving while impaired.
Police were conducting a checkstop at the intersection of Cree Road and Deerwood Drive in Thompson early Thursday when officers noticed an SUV signalling to turn down the road they were stationed on. He suddenly turned in the opposite direction of the checkstop and began driving away.
