The Healthcare Movie: showing in Silverton, Ore. March 4, 2014

Date:   Tuesday March 4, 2014
Time:   6:00 pm - 8:00 pm (GMT+00:00)
Location:   Silverton Grange Hall
Notes:   Silverton screening sponsored by the Silverton Grange, Silverton People for Peace, Main Street Alliance of Oregon and Health Care for All Oregon.

The Healthcare Movie, narrated by Keifer Sutherland, explores the health care system in Canada: how it came to be, how it works for ordinary Canadians, how it is paid for, and how it compares to its American counterpart.

The Healthcare Movie provides the real story of how the health care systems in Canada and the United States evolved to be so completely different, when at one point they were essentially the same. Most people under the age of 50, in both countries, are not aware of the intensity of the political struggle that led to the universal medical care system in Canada. Nor are they aware of the public relations campaigns, still active today, that have been prevalent in the United States since the early 1900 s to dissuade the public from supporting national health care.
