We CAN'T afford NOT to have a universal single-payer pharmacare plan

NationBuilder r1 British Columbia Health Coalition

Paov --

Everyday people across Canada have to choose between putting food on the table and buying their medicines. This leads to once manageable conditions escalating into health emergencies because a prescription was not filled due to cost.

For people with diabetes, heart disease and chronic respiratory problems alone, universal single-payer pharmacare would result in 220,000 fewer emergency room visits and 90,000 fewer hospital stays every year.

Raise a question on Pharmacare at an All Candidates Meeting

Faced with the overwhelming need for universal pharmacare, many parties are promising...

Anthropology Lansdowne Lecture:

Black Decolonial Praxis: A Liberation Story

Dr. Nicole Truesdell

Brown University

David Turpin Building, Room A102

7 p.m.

A Black Decolonial Praxis is a pathway to liberatory world making within the university. La paperson (2017) argues universities are colonial projects that have within them a decolonial education. For me that decolonial education looks to the ways ancestral knowledge, right relationship with the land and people, and the intersections of abolitionist and decolonial projects conjoin to create what I call a Black Decolonial Praxis. I situate this concept in two liberation stories: the Decolonizing Pedagogies Project (DPP) I co-led at Beloit College and the Institute for Transformative Practice I now lead at Brown Univerity.
