Town Hall Meeting Set to Oppose Provincial Budget


LETHBRIDGE: The Lethbridge Chapter of Friends of Medicare is holding a town hall meeting later this week, to discuss their concerns with last weeks provincial budget.


Group chair Shannon Phillips explained that they'll have health advocates, students, educators, long term care workers and people from the Idle No More movement at the meeting.


She explained that they're most worried about what will happen to front line health care workers, long term care and seniors care in Alberta following the budget cuts. However, Phillips added that they also plan to address issues surrounding education, saying that a number of students and educators from the two post secondary institutions in Lethbridge has raised a number of concerns.


Phillips also touched on a province-wide campaign they kicked off last week called "A Better Way Alberta". She explained that they propose an alternative to cutting spending, "We don't need to be constantly cutting public services that Albertans rely on, things like health care, seniors care. We can actually take a long, hard look at the revenue side of the ledger. Very wealthy corporations and very wealthy Albertans have enjoyed tax breaks in this province that you don't see in other places, not in area in North America."


The public meeting goes Thursday night at 7 o'clock at the Galt Museum.
