Canadians Want Federal Leadership in Health Care: National Day of Action Starts Campaign for New Health Accord

OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/28/14 -- The Canadian Health Coalition (CHC) will launch a national day of action March 31st to kick off a campaign for a new Health Accord. Events are organized in over 40 communities across Canada, including a luncheon in Ottawa with Dr. Jeff Turnbull - Past-President of the Canadian Medical Association, and a concert in Toronto with several Canadian artists - including Shirley Douglas.

"We are sounding the alarm to alert Canadians to the fact that the Harper government is not providing federal leadership in health care. This will lead to a fragmentation of services across the country, and access to care will depend on where you live and your ability to pay," says Michael McBane, Executive Director of the CHC.

The Canadian Health Coalition will follow up the day of action with a Medicare Tour, visiting eight cities across the country and meeting with citizens at community events, public forums, and workshops. The tour features Alex Himelfarb, former Clerk of the Privy Council to three prime ministers, and Wendell Potter, former VP of Communications for Cigna, one of the largest American health insurers.
