We’re 2 weeks away from the start of Brian Day’s lawsuit against Canadian public health care.

Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) voted to implement an investment screen restricting church investments in corporations that profit from human rights abuses, including those against Palestinians. In doing so, they join eight other denominations that have economically aligned their actions with their principles.

We congratulate Isaiah 58, a group of concerned ELCA members who support justice for Palestinians and were the driving force behind this motion. We look forward to working with them and other allies to continue to align our faith with our actions. In addition to this investment screen, the ECLA voted to ask the U.S. government to end aid to Israel until it ceases all settlement creation.

Coverage denied

NationBuilder r1 A nine year old was denied extended health coverage by a private
insurance company.Paov --

Last week in New Brunswick, a private insurance company denied a nine-year-old boy extended health coverage because of his “build.” [1]

Fortunately in Canada, private insurance companies don’t get to decide who gets basic health care coverageEveryone is covered by public insurance - regardless age, health standing, or income - and can access medically necessary care.

Brian Day wants to change that.

He’s leading a legal attack on our public health care system in an effort to bring US-style care to Canada. If Day wins, private insurance companies will be allowed to offer coverage -and deny it- for...

On August 6, there was a lively picket in Vancouver protesting the many BC Government liquor stores that carry Israeli wines and showing solidarity with Palestinian political prisoners. The video in the link above (which has already been viewed over 10,000 times on Facebook) shows highlights of the flash action inside the store. You can also check out our FB page for more photos and videos of the leafletting that continued on outside the store.
Thanks to everyone who participated, especially the folks from Solidarity Notes and our piper.

4 weeks away

NationBuilder r1 Paov -- The case goes to trial in 4 weeks

In just 4 weeks, I’ll be in court for the first time.

That’s because today it was confirmed that on September 6, 2016 Dr. Brian Day will begin his legal attack on Canada’s public health care system.

We've been involved in this case since it began. If Day wins, the legal changes he wants to make would replace Canada’s single payer health care with a U.S.-style two-tier system. 

It's important that many people as possible are paying attention to the case. Can you help spread the word by sharing the "I love public health...
