Canadian Doctors for Medicare - deadline to sign pledge to support Canadian health care system (re: federal election)
Sample Email To Federal Candidates
I am writing to ask that you make a commitment to our health care system and sign the Canadian Doctors for Medicare Health Care Protection Pledge.
The pledge was emailed to you last week and simply asks you to offer your commitment to protect our health care system. That commitment involves:
Sustaining the Canada Health Act with all its protections and all five principles now and after the 2014 Health Accord and enforce it across Canada.
Continuing to fund health care through Federal transfer payments tied to compliance with the Canada Health Act.
Please confirm your commitment to our health care system by signing the pledge and sending it to Canadian Doctors for Medicare by April 29th, 2011.
Canadian Doctors for Medicare will be publishing a list of candidates who signed, and who did not sign the pledge before voting day.
If you haven’t received the pledge, you can contact Canadian Doctors for Medicare at email@example.com or download a pledge form from their website www.canadiandoctorsformedicare.ca.
