National Medicare Tour with Wendell Potter & Michael McBane
"Making Canada’s public health care work for all and the generations to come"
The [ http://healthcoalition.ca/ ]Canadian Health Coalition (CHC) is coordinating a National Medicare Tour featuring prominent American public health care advocate Wendell Potter and the CHC’s National Coordinator Michael McBane.
The focus will be on getting the Harper government to return to the negotiating table with the provinces to ensure strong and stable public health care across Canada. Its refusal to do so will lead to the fragmentation of services and the end of national standards. The federal government holds enormous potential to improve health care across Canada. A new agreement with the provinces can solve many of the health care problems facing Canadians today, such as scarcity of long-term care beds, long wait times, and difficulties finding a family doctor.
Friends of Medicare will be hosting the Alberta stops of the tour (click the event for more details):
