Protect, strengthen and expand health care; town hall meeting in Regina

REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwired - June 20, 2014) - Saskatchewan is facing a $1.1 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 Saskatchewan.

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