Stop Paid Plasma Speaking Tour - Lethbridge

Should Blood and Plasma Be for Sale?


Friends of Medicare are hosting an evening event on September 12 where we will talk about ongoing efforts to introduce private pay-for-plasma donation clinics in Canada and how they relate to the tainted blood scandal of the 1980s.

After the discussion there will be an opportunity for Q&A and information on how you can join the campaign to secure the integrity of a voluntary donation system where profit and payment do not put our supply at risk.

Speakers include: 
Kat Lanteigne of whose advocacy efforts helped push the Ontario government to pass a law with support of all parties to ban paid clinics there.

Sandra Azocar of Friends of Medicare who will talk about the Alberta context where some politicians are in favour of the clinics moving here.

The event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:45 with the event starting at 7 pm.
