Princeton joined in with 40 other communities across Canada holding rallies to show their support for a fundamental right—access to health care equality and fair funding.

Approximately 100 citizens came together in Veterans Square on March 31 at noon. Signs bearing the words “Keep health care public” red umbrellas and red clothing in support of Canada’s Health Accord were carried and worn by many in attendance.

Words of welcome and encouragement were expressed by speakers: Ed Staples president of Support Our Health Care, Lilly Zekanovic on behalf of MP Alex Atamanenko, Mayor Frank Armitage, Area H director Brad Hope and community/senior’s representative Walter Hogg.

They all had the same message to share — “We can make a difference.”  “Our elected officials respond best when they hear from you in a personal way,” concludes Staples.
