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 constituencies of both the Minister of Health and the Minister of Seniors & Housing to make our voices heard!
