FROM RNAO PRESIDENT DAVID McNEIL AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR DORIS GRINSPUN
As a nurse, you know what’s at stake in Monday’s federal election:
- Future of our treasured publicly-funded and not-for-profit health-care
system and whether we take the opportunity of the upcoming health accord
negotiations to guarantee primary care for every Canadian and include home care
and pharmacare coverage;
- Reversing the failure to enforce the Canada
Health Act to protect Canadians from user fees, extra-billing and
- Federal leadership to take action on the factors that affect the health
of individuals and communities such as poverty, the need for affordable
housing, child care and clean air and water;
- Improving access to comprehensive nursing services, especially in remote
and rural communities.
Nurses are involved actively participating in
the democratic process like never before!
