Let's March on Queen's Park May 8th!

  1. Received the following e-mail from the RNAO this week. I would like to see as many Ontario nurses as possible take part in this protest!!

    Just forwarding this for your information - an example of political action
    in T.O.

    CALLING ALL STUDENTS! CALLING ALL YOUTH!

    Our public health is under attack from a virulent new virus:

    PRIVATIZATION!

    Even more virulent than foot-and-mouth disease, this virus attacks the
    central nervous systems of hospitals, clinics, nurses, family and
    specialist practices, leaving them unable to deliver even basic health care
    to anyone earning less than $100,000.00.

    Make no mistake: IT CAN BE DEADLY!

    Born as a result of social-Darwinist genetic engineering experiments in
    the United States, it spread north into Canada last year. So far, doctors,
    nurses, students and citizens had managed to keep this virus confined to
    Alberta, but now it has become clear that Ontario's own Premier and
    Minister of Health have become infected.

    Witness Mike Harris' remarks this week on the t.v. show Focus Ontario: "I
    think we need to look to the private sector [...] We should not be afraid to
    say 'Can the private sector run this hospital better?'"

    THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW! THE PREMIER MUST BE DISINFECTED OF
    THIS VIRUS BEFORE IT SPREADS!

    Join hundreds of your fellow students at Queen's Park, 3:00pm, Tuesday
    May 8th as we DISINFECT THE PREMIER OF THE PRIVATIZATION
    VIRUS!

    The event will be accompanied by speeches from politicians working the
    front lines of this operation; nursing and medical students looking for
    new ways to combat the spread; and Shirley Douglas, the daughter of Tommy
    Douglas, who founded Canada's medicare system, and a lady who herself has
    devoted much effort to the cause.

    Join us afterwards for a march downtown to the Business Conference on
    National Issues, where we'll disinfect them too!
