Canada’s First Ministers are meeting in Halifax from July 25-27 as the Council of the Federation.  The future of public health care is on the agenda.

The Nova Scotia Citizens’ Health Care Network, Council of Canadians, and allies are organizing several public events to show the premiers that Canadians are watching and we want action to protect, strengthen and extend public health care. The federal government must return to the negotiating table.

Puppets on Parade

Waterfront – across from the Historic Farmers’ Market
1496 Lower Water Street

Puppets Et Cetera! presents an outdoor performance and parade exploring the theme of migrant labour within the farming industry of Nova Scotia. Through various methods of street performance, the troupe will bring to attention issues of unfair labour practices that are left under-addressed within the local food movement and investigate what really constitutes ethical food. The performance will include a short outdoor variety show as well as a puppet procession parading along Lower Water Street between the Historic Farmers’ Market and the Seaport Farmers’ Market. The variety shows will include a variety of acts ranging from puppet skits, circus acts, musical numbers and theatrical story telling. All are welcome to join the parade!
