Communities Push For New Health Accord

Communities across the country were standing up to support health care today. The Health Accord established in 2004, expires at the end of this month. The agreement between federal, provincial and territorial governments ensures certain levels of funding to help deliver health care services. In Bridgewater, Council of Canadians member Mary Wright says it's important to raise awareness.

Rallies will be held in 45 communities in Canada on Monday. They will be raising awareness and calling for new Health Accord.
