Canadian Health Coalition Starts Medicare Pledge Campaign

The Canadian Health Coalition as part of its anti-privatization campaign is asking people to sign the Medicare Pledge in anticipation of National Medicare Week coming up in November 16-20.

http://medicare.ca/medicare-pledge Please take a few seconds to sign the pledge.

This is an important initiative. We need to continue to demonstrate broad support for Medicare given the current lack of federal leadership on Health Care, as well as attacks on Medicare across the country. For example in BC, private clinics led by Dr. Brian Day have launched a court case challenging the Canada Health Act and its defence of public insurance.

We must defend access to care based on need, not ability to pay.

Please take a moment to sign the pledge.

Please pass on this request to your lists.
