Video: Rally to save the Thunder Bay CBS Plasma Donation Centre

Politicians, donors, staff and union officials rallied outside Canadian Blood Services’ Thunder Bay Plasma Donation Centre on April 11, 2012.

CBS is plans on closing the centre April 12, placing 28 staff out of work.

While it claims it does not need the 10,800 annual units of plasma from donors in Thunder Bay, CBS notes in its last annual report that it is importing 20,000 units of “surplus” plasma from the United States.
