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.)

Allied events!
