A helicopter ambulance would be based in Brandon if the Progressive Conservatives were in power.

Party leader Hugh McFadyen announced Monday the PCs would implement a chopper to better serve Manitobans in the Westman region.

“We can’t change the fact that Greg Selinger closed fifteen rural emergency rooms, but we can make investments that will expand the reach of the emergency room capabilities of our major centres like Brandon,” McFadyen said.

A Brandon-based helicopter ambulance would cost $5 million.

McFadyen also rolled out his flood-fighting plan, promising a complete, comprehensive review of provincial actions and resources in the 2011 flood.
