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

NORTH BAY, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 20, 2014) - Ontario is facing a $14 billion 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 northern Ontario.

Next week in North Bay, 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 Ontarians, and what can be done to support public solutions to make our health care stronger for all Canadians.
