Quebec health minister Gaetan Barrette announced Wednesday that he wishes to standardize the cost of medical treatments for the province.

According to the Montreal Gazette, Barrette believes the standardized costs will save Quebec "hundreds of millions of dollars” and will reduce waiting times for patients.

Barrette also wishes to set an average base price for each health service in order for hospitals to bill the government and kickstart an initiative called “activity-based funding”.

Healthcare IT company Logibec will study the costs of medical procedures in institutions across the province.

The process is due to cost taxpayers up to 70 million dollars.

Pierre Karl Péladeau stated in English that the Liberal government was taking the anglophone community for granted and that they must respect the anglophone community’s rights.

Despite a bylaw that came into effect in October, some Montreal cab drivers are still not accepting credit or debit as forms of payment.

According to CBC News, one Montreal citizen told the news outlet that four cabs in a row told her their card readers weren't working- although when she refused to pay cash, they started to work again.

Director of development for the city of Montreal's taxi bureau, Sylvain Tousignant says the new rules are only three months old and that he's not surprised that there is some resistance.

However, he adds that it's important for customers to report infractions.

So far, inspectors have issued roughly 50 warnings to drivers for not respecting the new bylaw, with fines ranging between 125 and 375 dollars.

Several Canadian cities have chosen to opt-out from the federal government's plan to pursue a national census of homeless people. 

According to The National Post, these cities include Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, Edmonton, and Calgary- who have chosen instead to take the homeless count into their own hands over the next few years.  

The move will result in the federal government having incomplete data on assessing the Canada's poverty situation, leaving the governing Liberal party in limbo of being able to fulfill their promise of addressing it. 

Pedro Barata of the Toronto non-profit organization United Way, believes that the data collected from individual cities can still be assessed on a national scale, as long as the way they are counted remains consistent.
