Vancouver, Monday, June 18, 2012 — A loud and clear message is being sent to the Conservative government today: stop cutting Canada’s environmental, health and social systems. As more than 800 registered nurses (RNs) gather in Vancouver for the Canadian Nurses Association’s (CNA) annual general meeting and biennial convention, action is being demanded to halt the systemic dismantling of income security programs, environmental protection measures and investments in health. Federal members of parliament and senators are being urged to stop these cuts, which are fundamentally irresponsible and damaging to the health and wellness of Canadians.

CNA declares that RNs will speak out against these cuts, and that the association will support its members to protect the integrity of essential programs and the health of our nation.
