Media Advisory: Protect, Strengthen and Expand Health Care; Town Hall Meeting in Charlottetown

CHARLOTTETOWN, PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND--(Marketwired - Aug. 22, 2014) - Charlottetown is facing a $144 million cut to health care funding by the federal government over the next ten years. By refusing to sign a new health accord with the provinces, the federal government is abandoning its responsibility to protect quality public health care services for all Islanders.

Coinciding with the meeting of Canada's Premiers at the Council of the Federation next week in Charlottetown, the Council of Canadians and the Canadian Union of Public Employees are hosting a town hall meeting to discuss what these cuts will mean for Islanders, and what can be done to support public solutions to make our health care stronger for all Canadians.
