This Saturday, December 15, Bill C-31: The Refugee Exclusion Act, comes into full effect. Doctors for Refugee Health will be holding vigils across Canada to demand full restoration of funding to the Interim Federal Health Program that used to provide health care treatment for refugees. Doctors for Refugee Care has asked Sanctuary Health to help coordinate a vigil in Vancouver as part of this event. We know it's very last minute, but we'd love for Vancouver to come out and demand justice for refugees and migrants!
Please forward widely to your networks.
Time: Saturday December 15, 1pm
Location: CIC offices at 300 W Georgia St (near the library, corner of Georgia and Hamilton.)
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
