On June 17 Canadian Doctors For Refugee Care conducted demonstrations across Canada drawing attention to the Harper government’s 2012 changes to the Interim Federal Health Plan that would deny many desperate refugees access to our health system.
As the people in one of the following videos states, “the fact that there are people here in Canada who are deemed ‘unworthy’ of health care is despicable.”
Many doctors have filled the gap and have been providing care for free, but it is hardly a solution.
Two recent videos worth watching: the first is a very well-done promotional video prepared by the Canadian Doctor’s For Refugee Care for the Montreal rally. The second is coverage of Hamilton’s rally by our good friends at Operation Maple.
Please take the time, watch, and get active! It’s one more reason to show up in Niagara-on-the-Lake July 24-25.
