Nurses, supporters stage info picket

Members of a couple of unions representing health care workers staged an ‘information picket’ outside the Slave Lake Health Care Centre on Sept. 1. They are not happy with proposed government cuts to health care, specifically those they say would make work even more difficult for already-overburdened nurses and other workers in the system. Pictured are reps from the United Nurses of Alberta and Health Sciences Association of Alberta, who collaborated on the effort. Danielle Larivee, vice president of the UNA, says a lot of people showed support for the picketers, creating “a real positive feeling.”
