Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Kathy Dunderdale finally got her long-awaited meeting with Prime Minister Stephen Harper on Monday.
A statement from the Prime Minister's Office said the leaders discussed a number of issues, most notably the economy.
It said Harper went over federal plans for economic growth and job creation. It also said he expressed renewed support for the proposed hydroelectric project at Muskrat Falls.
Dunderdale requested a meeting with Harper in the spring after a public outcry over search and rescue cuts in the province and the death of Burton Winters. The 14-year-old Labrador boy was found dead in February, three days after getting lost in a blizzard.
In May, Dunderdale said she was growing increasingly frustrated with Defence Minister Peter MacKay, whose responsibilities include search and rescue.
"I'm certainly at odds with Minister MacKay,” Dunderdale told CBC Radio’s The House in an interview at the time.
"Certainly in terms of search and rescue here in the province, but particularly in terms of the humanitarian response that we looked for [from] them on the search for that young man from Labrador."
The premier said in May it has been a "frustrating" four months trying to get answers from MacKay and getting him to take responsibility for "poor judgment in decision-making and a timely response."
Dunderdale also expressed concern over how EI reform could impact people in the province.
A federal loan guarantee for the proposed Muskrat Falls hydro project has also not yet been finalized.
The Harper Conservatives made that pledge — a guarantee, or equivalent financial aid — during the 2011 federal election .
