UPDATE: NOII sets up ‘hotline’ against cuts to health care for refugees

A great initiative by No One Is Illegal – Toronto to challenge the cuts to health care for refugees in Canada implemented by the Harper government on June 30.

Council of Canadians health care campaigner Adrienne Silnicki writes, “These cuts include access to vision care, dental care, prescription drugs and mobility devices for all refugees. For many refugees it also includes restrictions on primary and basic health care. This includes medical assistance during emergencies like heart attacks and even during child birth.”
