The Council of Canadians – Halton Chapter invites you to their June meeting

Wednesday, June 21, 7 – 9 pm.
Oakville Town Hall
1225 Trafalgar Rd., Oakville

A Pharmacare presentation will be delivered by Diana Clarke

A Pharmacare presentation will be delivered by Diana Clarke, a member of our chapter with extensive knowledge and experience working in the field of benefits and pensions for 37 years. Diana advised, educated and advocated on government income and benefit plans and has worked as the senior benefits counselor for OPSEU for 16 years.

A new survey commissioned by The Council of Canadians and conducted by Environics Research found that 91% of Canadians want the liberals to implement pharmacare. At the moment Canadians spend 50% more per capita on pharmaceuticals than people in other countries with universal pharmacare.

To make pharmacare a reality we need to become informed, involved and share our knowledge with family, friends and especially with our member of parliament. Without a groundswell of public engagement, to balance the lobbying of the large pharmaceutical corporations, it is unlikely the federal government will implement a universal pharmacare program.
