NEWS: Council and NSCHCN organize ‘town crier’ health care protest

MetroNews reports that the Council of Canadians and the Nova Scotia Citizens’ Health Care Network organized “a lunchtime demonstration on Barrington Street in front of Minister of Health and Wellness Dave Wilson’s office on Monday. …The demonstration boasted a town crier who delivered the group’s requests to Halifax-Chebucto MLA Howard Epstein, who attended the demonstration in place of Wilson.” The article continues, “On Thursday, health ministers from each province will descend on the Lord Nelson Hotel for a two day meeting. The agenda has yet to be disclosed but both groups are hoping the 2014 Health Accord will be top of mind. Specifically, they want a stronger national health plan.”
