OPEN LETTER LINK: https://goo.gl/forms/wAXTJE6YiqUFSo8x1
We are writing to you today to urge your action on a crucial matter pertaining to health and human rights. The United Nations Human Rights Committee (UNHRC) recently issued a landmark decision condemning Canada for denying access to essential health care on the basis of immigration status based on the case of Nell Toussaint. More information in the open letter, and the backgrounder document included.
Please sign the open letter here, calling on the federal government for action~around this issue. We are collecting signatures from individuals and organizations in Canada until Friday, December 14th, 2018, with a plan for wide media release on International Migrants Day (December 18th). We would appreciate it if you could please also share this widely.
