March for What Matters (YEG)

February 27, 2020 at 03:31 PM
Alberta Legislature in Edmonton, AB, Canada

This is an opportunity for individuals across all public sector professions to unite together against the Premier's relentless and ruthless sweeping cuts to what Albertan's need most. Take a stand against the privatization of Alberta's public services.

Since this government took office unemployment has increased while the quality of public services in our province has decreased, and a number of our public services have made steady moves towards privatization or being eliminated entirely.

Please join us as we march from the Edmonton Convention Center to the front of the Legislature Building and make our voices heard. After our work day finishes, let's stand alongside fellow Albertans to stand up for what is right: EQUITABLE access to QUALITY public services.

For those willing and able to march, please meet at the upper entrance to the convention center at 3:31 pm to begin our march to the Legislature steps (actual parade route to be posted closer to the march/rally).

For those who wish to participate but are unable to join in the march, please join us at the Legislature steps between 4:00-4:15pm.

Red has been a colour worn to represent the passion people have for public education. To show unity on this march everyone is invited to wear red. Let's make them not only hear us but see us coming too. Wear red!!

Public Health Care: Public Solutions

March 04, 2020 at 06:30 PM
Ukrainian Centre in Edmonton, AB, Canada

The 2019 provincial budget and the McKinnon report showed unequivocally that this government heading towards ever more privatization of our health care system. When it comes to providing timely and quality care, the government has shown that they are unwilling to seek public solutions to expand and improve our public health care system.

Join us at a free, public town hall event as we discuss some of the issues faced by our public health care system, and consider solutions that would maintain a commitment to equitable and accessible public health care for ALL Albertans.

Speakers and additional information TBA.
