Take a Stand for Medicare: Renew the Health Accord
July 12, 2013, 2:00 PM EST
In 2014, the 10-year Health Accord that sets the terms for health care funding and priorities between the federal and provincial governments will expire. To date, the federal government has refused to renegotiate a new Health Accord.
In July all the provincial and territorial premiers from across Canada are getting together in Niagara-on-the-Lake for the last "Council of the Federation" meeting before the Accord expires.
A Shadow Summit and Mass Rally are being organized to coincide with the Council of the Federation meetings on Wednesday, July 24 and Thursday, July 25.
National President Ken Lewenza will be speaking at the rally and many locals from across Ontario are organizing busses to attend.
