Prime Minister Justin Trudeau opened today's virtual first ministers meeting talking about the need to work together on the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines.

He listed everything his government has done to help the provinces cope with the pandemic, reminding premiers that Ottawa has covered 80 per cent of the costs so far.

But Trudeau acknowledged the meeting is an opportunity to discuss the premiers' unanimous demand for at least 28 billion dollars more each year in unconditional federal transfers for health care.

He says the government is determined to offer Canadians the efficient, high-quality health care they deserve.
