03 Mar Stand for Medicare – March 31 Day of Action!
We are facing an important and deeply concerning moment in the history of public health care. March 31st marks the expiry of the 2004 Health Accord and the federal government has refused to negotiate a new one.
We are sounding the alarm to alert Canadians to the end of federal leadership in health care and cuts of $36 billion to health transfers over 10 years. To do that, we are holding events in communities across Nova Scotia and all across the rest of Canada.
We’ve already started planning for events in Halifax and Bridgewater, with more to come.
Can you help organize actions in your community on March 31st?
The action could take any form, from holding a rally or a film screening, to distributing letters, meeting an MP, or writing a letter to the newspaper.
Any action, big or small, is important!
Materials, pamphlets, and media kits will be available to you. We’ll be working to coordinate the various communities around the province and provide all the support you need. We’ll also connect you to others who want to take action in your area.
Add your name here and we’ll help you organize an event in your community or connect you to others who are already planning nearby. Please see the attached posters about the event, and forward this email to anyone who care about public health care.
By joining together on March 31st, we can show the depth of support for public health care and put a national spotlight on this issue.
