Council of Canadians rallying March 31 to support health care

The Comox Valley and Campbell River chapters of the Council of Canadians will rally March 31, the day Canada’s Health Care Accord expires.

The Comox Valley and Campbell River chapters of the Council of Canadians along with the B.C. Health Coalition will hold a short rally March 31 on the day Canada’s Health Care Accord expires.

The rally will be at 3:30 p.m. outside Conservative MP John Duncan’s Campbell River constituency office at 1250F Cedar St.

Save Medicare: March 31 is a National Day of Action with events across Canada  to demand that the Conservative government renegotiate a new Health Care Accord that enforces the principles and provisions of the Canada Health Act and transfers sufficient health care funds to the provinces.

Come and get information on the Harper government’s health care agenda and on how to take action to get our premiers and Prime Minister Harper back to the table to protect, strengthen and extend public health care for all Canadians.

For more information, e-mail surfdust@telus.net or phone 250-286-3019.
