The Manitoba government committing to its Budget 2024 plan of hiring 100 new doctors over the next year, but is this a realistic goal? 

Dr. Candance Bradshaw says Manitoba has one of the worst doctor shortages in the country — saying it would take 445 more doctors just to reach the national average.

“If we can add 10 per cent more doctors than the average, and lose 10 per cent fewer doctors than average, we can hit that 100 number,” said Dr. Candance Bradshaw, a family physician with Doctors Manitoba.

The move is part of the over $300 million plan to hire 1,000 new health care workers. Last year, the province hired 44 new doctors into the health care system — and the plan is to over double that number by this time next year.

“I am not sure how they are going to find even the 100 doctors they are talking about and what kind of incentives they are going to give them,” said Dr. Pravinsagar Mehta, a Winnipeg Family Physician.

Dr. Mehta has been in Winnipeg family physician for almost 50 years. He says there is truly a major shortage of family doctors in the province and says it will be hard to recruit.

“We all need to work together, but even if you do that, you need a team and where are you going to find teams and that’s a problem. It will cost money, it will take time and it’s not a simple solution you can just fix in six months.”

Dr. Amanda Condon says it’s really important to focus, train, and recruit graduates already in the province because she says doctors are desperately needed all over Manitoba.

“It is important to take that equity lens and ensure that we are matching people and meeting the needs of Manitobans across the province where that need is most dire, so ensuring that we are considering that as part of our recruitment strategies and building it into the work we are doing,” said Dr. Condon.

“The question as to whether or not it is realistic is a difficult one to answer.”

Manitoba RCMP have charged two people after responding to a single-vehicle crash near Brunkild on Wednesday.

Police responded to Highway 3 just after 8 a.m. when a vehicle was being towed out of the northwest ditch. It’s believed the driver hit the ditch at around 1 a.m.

The man driving the vehicle appeared to be impaired and a woman was located sleeping in the backseat, according to police. Officers searched the vehicle after illegal cigarettes were located on the driver. Police also found crack, cocaine, drug trafficking paraphernalia, and an undisclosed amount of Canadian currency.

A 43-year-old Steinbach man and a 21-year-old RM of Ste. Anne woman were arrested and face drug-related charges.

A roadside screening test on the driver returned a positive result for cocaine. Additional charges are pending. The driver also had his licence revoked.

Both suspects were released pending a court date.

Winnipeg police have charged a 22-year-old man in connection to several robberies that happened on Apr. 7 and 9.

Police say over two days officers received several reports of commercial robberies at gas stations and convenience stores along the Henderson Highway.

During several of the incidents, a masked suspect, who was armed with a knife, reportedly threatened employees and demanded money and cigarettes.

Timeline of the events:

  • On April 7, at around 6:30 p.m., at a gas bar in the 900 block of Henderson Hwy. During the robbery, an employee was stabbed, and the suspect fled on foot, making good his escape with merchandise. The victim, in their 20s, was transported to hospital in unstable condition and upgraded to stable condition.
  • On April 9, at around 6:00 a.m., at a convenience store in the 1300 block of Henderson Hwy, merchandise was stolen.
  • On April 9, at around 9:15 a.m., at a convenience store in the 1800 block of Henderson Hwy, merchandise was stolen.
  • On April 9, at around 9:20 a.m., at a fast food restaurant in the 1700 block of Henderson Hwy, nothing was stolen.
  • On April 9, at around 9:30 a.m., at a gas station restaurant in the 1900 block of Henderson Hwy. An employee attempted to hold the door closed to prevent entry, but the suspect overpowered him and made off with money.
  • On April 9, at around 10:30 p.m., at a convenience store in the 1800 block of Henderson Hwy (that he had previously robbed that morning), money was stolen.
  • After leaving the last robbery, the accused ran across a grocery store parking lot in the 1700 block of Henderson Hwy, where he confronted a man, demanded his property, and attempted to punch and rob him.

Officers who were searching the area noticed the final incident listed and were able to take the suspect into custody after a short foot chase.

The man was taken to hospital where it was later believed that he was under the influence of methamphetamine.

Since, 22-year-old Aaron Braiden Beaupre has been charged with 21 offences relating to robbery, aggravated assault, and weapons.
