On October 26th and 27th, CUPE union development staff trained facilitators to present the National Medicare Exhibit. The two-day workshop armed facilitators with the tools they would need to travel across the province, and eventually across the country, to help Canadians understand how our Medicare system has evolved since its inception. The workshop began with practice in public speaking. We went on to learn about the issues addressed in the exhibit. The afternoon covered pointers on how to deal with the Media. The second day dealt with the exhibit itself. We had to learn how to erect and dismantle the panels, and how to deal with a whole range of questions that we might encounter during the tour. The enthusiasm was palpable as the participants declared themselves ready to handle whatever situation might ensue during the tour.
Look for the exhibit in your own community and learn why it is so important to fight for our Medicare.
