Alberta Legislature Grounds in Edmonton, AB, Canada

Rally in Support of Life Saving Supervised Consumption Services

Since January 1st, 2016, we have lost a devastating 2,026 friends, family, and loved ones; we have buried our children, siblings, and parents over what can only be described as a crisis of misaligned drug policy. We are deeply concerned about the potential closure of supervised consumption services and call upon every Albertan to lend their support for these life-saving programs. Failure to maintain and build on the tireless efforts of harm reduction initiatives in this process will only lead to further inequity, harm, and deaths.

Join Friends of Medicare and Albertans for Ethical Drug Policy at a lunchtime legislature rally as we call on the government to support supervised consumption sites and other evidence-based harm reduction initiatives in our province.

Public Health Care: Public Solutions

The 2019 provincial budget, the McKinnon report, and the AHS performance review all showed unequivocally that this government bent on ever more privatization of our health care system. When it comes to providing timely and quality care, the UCP has shown that they are unwilling to seek public solutions that will expand and improve our public health care system.

Join us at a public town hall event as we discuss some of the issues faced by our public health care system, and consider solutions that would maintain a commitment to equitable and accessible public health care for ALL Albertans.

While the government cuts and privatizes our essential public services, Albertans will come together to stand up for the public good!


Speakers and more information TBA.
