Ambulance Paramedics Mediator?

Health Minister George Abbott agrees, a mediator appointed by the labour board has booked out — but says, from a legal perspective, he remains in place.

Mr. Abbott says the official could return to the talks, if that’s what paramedics or the B-C Ambulance Service wants.
