Stand together for the future of health care
The federal government is turning its back on health care at a time when we need our elected leaders to help build a caring future for Canada. The current federal-provincial-territorial agreement on health care will end in 2014 and the federal government has walked away from the negotiating table with the provinces before negotiations have even started.
Some provinces have already come forward in opposition to the federal government’s actions. If the provinces work together to get the federal government back to the negotiating table, they can get down to the work of creating a new accord and building a caring future for health care in Canada.
The premiers are meeting in Halifax July 25-27 to discuss health care. We need them to join together with people across Canada in calling for a new health accord.
Join up with organizations and individuals across the country to organize a Day of Action on July 18. This action will show that people across Canada are standing together for a strong public health care system to support a caring future for Canada, not line-of-credit health care that few of us can afford. Communities across the country and B.C. are already organizing local actions.
