I found a link:

Personal care home in Lac du Bonnet (estimated cost $32 million).
Northern consultation clinic in Thompson ($9 million).
St. Vital primary care access clinic ($4.7 million).
The Pas primary care clinic ($5.3 million).
CancerCare Manitoba facility ($300 million).

Navaratnam said the CancerCare centre, which would have put all of its services together under one roof, cannot be built without provincial funding. It currently rents space in several buildings.

Plans for a blood bank in St. Boniface, which had not been previously announced, will also not go ahead. The PCs say that project was estimated to cost $2.1 million.

Three other projects that were announced by the NDP have not been approved by the Treasury Board:

A new facility for the Pan Am Clinic in Winnipeg.
A Concordia wellness centre.
An international centre for dignity and palliative care.

A government spokesperson told CBC News that aside from an MRI facility for the Dauphin Health Centre, for which a decision is pending,

----
They're building the facility.  You can go and see it.  With this government, there's a good chance it will sit empty without an MRI for...ever.

There is a huge deficit that needs to be dealt with.  What's supposed to happen?  It has to get paid one way or another.  I think the millenial generation is going to learn the hard way that the boomer generation lived very high on the hog...
