Bridgewater: Groups To Discuss Health Care Funding

Changes within the health care system will be the hot agenda item during a meeting in Bridgewater. The Council of Canadians and CUPE are joining together for a public discussion on the need for a new Health Accord. The accord expired at the end of March. It guaranteed a certain level of funding from Ottawa to the provinces for health care and medication. The meeting will also discuss a potential funding crisis in the health system across Canada. It will be held this evening at the Best Western in Cookville at 7PM.
