Share:

TORONTO, Aug. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CLC Executive Vice-President Larry Rousseau will be in Toronto to take part in the Toronto and York Region Labour Council's annual Labour Day Parade. Rousseau will be available to media before and after the parade to speak about the CLC's pharmacare campaign, the value of unions and the significance of Labour Day to working people.

This year, Canada's unions are calling on the federal government to get it right on pharmacare by creating a single-payer, universal pharmacare program for Canada. Find out more at www.aplanforeveryone.ca.

"The cancellation of OHIP+ in Ontario is a perfect example of what we've been saying all along: patchwork coverage that varies from one province to another isn't working for people in Canada," said Rousseau. "Single-payer, universal prescription drug coverage is the right way forward and the only way pharmacare will work."

Who: Larry Rousseau, CLC Executive Vice-President
   
What:  Labour Day Parade
   
Where:  Parade starting at Queen Street West and University Avenue
   
When:  September 3, 2018, 9:30 a.m.
