Health Care Actions During the Council of the Federation, July 25-27

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.

All are welcome to the events. Please check their website for additional details:

“What the hell do all these people want? It’s like they want to live in a world where workers have a say about their working conditions! […]

Another strike! Dammit, if only they would camp somewhere, then we could just send the cops and evict them!” – Peter Kelly (the puppet)
