WHY PUBLIC LONG-TERM CARE MATTERS

Friends of Medicare are partnering with CUPE Alberta for a tour through the province highlighting issues in Long-Term Care.

A recent report from the Parkland Institute titled "Losing Ground" has provided evidence of the importance of public care and why privatization should be stopped.

As a start you can download our petition which calls on the Alberta government to build at least 2,000 public long-term care spaces and end the practice of approving new private facilities. Print it out and get as many signatures as you can and then send it to us before March 2017.

Our members and the public in the surrounding areas are encouraged to join us at each event. Please share with people who would be interested.
