October 20 is the birthday of Tommy Douglas – Canada’s “greatest Canadian” (according to the CBC 2005 poll)

Celebrate Tommy’s contribution to Canada – our national public health care system and  say Thanks Tommy!  

As our gift to Tommy we pledge to continue his work:

  • Protect and improve the funding and delivery of our public health care system
  • Fight against privatization and two-tier delivery
  • Create other national programs, like public pharmacare and homecare for all Canadians.

CUPE is hosting ‘Thanks Tommy’ events in St John’s, Charlottetown, Halifax, Winnipeg, Regina, Vancouver and other centres. Join the party or organize in your workplace on October 20.
