The People's Bus
The government has launched an all-out assault on our public services, with major impacts on seniors and their families. That's why Friends of Medicare, Public Interest Alberta, and our allies are chartering THE PEOPLE'S BUS. We are going to the constituency of the Minister of Health to make our voices heard!
