North Island MP’s office slated for health protest

A “Rally For Public Health Care” will be held Monday, March 31 at 3:30 p.m. outside Conservative MP John Duncan’s Campbell River constituency office (1250F Cedar Street).

The Campbell River and Comox Valley chapters of the Council of Canadians along with the B.C. Health Coalition are holding a short rally on the occasion of the expiry of Canada’s Health Care Accord.

March 31 is a National Day of Action with events across Canada to demand that the Conservative government renegotiate a new Health Care Accord which enforces the principles and provisions of the Canada Health Act and transfers sufficient health care funds to the provinces. This is an opportunity to get information on the Harper government’s health care agenda and on how to take action on getting provincial 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 or phone 250-286-3019.
