Secure the Future of Medicare: A Call to Care

Context:  In the lead up to the renewal of the 2014 Health Accord, Canadians want the federal government to work closely with the provinces and territories to strike a long term deal that will strengthen the public health care system in Canada.  To this end, the Canadian Health Coalition has been instrumental in organizing this action.  The Council of Canadians is pleased to be one of many participating groups from across Canada.

This workshop is the first of two parts.  Part one will be a training workshop to prepare volunteers on the objectives of the lobby.  A number of participants have already received their lobby kits.  If you wish to volunteer, please contact to register and a lobby kit will be emailed to you.   To volunteer, contact Ted @

Part two involves you making contact with your MP and arranging for an appointment of between 20 and 30 minutes.  This will be followed by a brief written feedback to us on your experiences.  A feedback form and an MP information kit will be provided at the workshop.

By participating in this event, you will become part of an important country wide lobby effort that will send a clear signal to the federal government that their participation in health care is vital and essential.

Climate Change Reality: A Hot Topic, January 17, 2012

“Climate Change Reality – A Hot Topic”


Guest Speakers: Robin and Marian White

Their world travels, often for months on end – from mountain and boreal forest to the equator, through tropical forests, deserts, savannahs, biodiversity hotspots, urban and rural landscapes teeming with people, and Denmark, a leader in renewable energy – were life-changing.

They are authors of the award-winning book, Wild Alberta at the Crossroads.


The Whites present right-up-to-date pictures, video, charts, tables, text, and narrative to walk the audience through the reality and science of climate change, the perverse behaviour of the denial industry, key concerns, the carbon dioxide reduction targets needed, government performance, and where we go from here.


As of 2011, they are presenters for former US vice-president Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project.

Meeting Agenda:

  • 7:30 – COC Announcements
  • 7:40 – 9:15 – Presentation and Discussion
