Media Advisory: Protect, strengthen and expand health care; town hall meeting in Moncton

MONCTON, NEW BRUNSWICK--(Marketwired - April 16, 2014) - New Brunswick is facing a $715 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 New Brunswickers.

Next week in Moncton, 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 New Brunswickers, and what can be done to support public solutions to make our health care stronger for all Canadians.
