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
CALLING ALL STUDENTS! CALLING ALL YOUTH!
Our public health is under attack from a virulent new virus:
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
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!
