Rally to Save the DTES Health Contact Centre-THIS AFTERNOON!
I realize that this is extremely short notice, but I heard from a volunteer coordinator I know who works closely with members of the DTES community that there will be a rally starting in about an hour to protest Vancouver Coastal Health’s decision to close the Health Contact Centre in the bottom of the Roosevelt hotel.
The rally starts in front of Downtown Eastside Women Centre, 302 Columbia, and will proceed to the closed Health Contact Centre on Main and Hastings.
For those who are unaware of the issues surrounding the Health Contact Centre closer, here are two articles that give a bit of background info.
Despite the short notice, I think it’s worthwhile to read about the centre and learn a bit more about the issues surrounding it.
