CHR Named in Seniors' Class-action LawsuitBook
The Chinook Health Region has been named in a class-action lawsuit claiming it and other health regions have failed to adequately fund health care in the province. The suit also names the province and alleges the government acted in bad faith and with careless disregard for the interests of seniors after it increased long-term care fees in August 2003, yet reduced health-care funding to nursing homes.
