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.
