For Immediate Release
February 4, 2020

Edmonton – HSAA has released a new line of valentine cards that all Albertans concerned about the future of health care can access and send to the current premier, his cabinet and all government MLAs.

“It’s long past time we put the heart back in health care,” said HSAA Vice-President, Trudy Thomson. “At Valentine’s, we spend a lot of time thinking with our hearts. We are asking the current government to consider a more compassionate way instead of forging ahead with its profits over patients approach to health care.”

“Health matters to all of us. Let’s not put it at risk. Keep health care public and let’s make it better for everyone,” continued Thomson. “Our members and all Albertans can send a message to this government this Valentine’s. Don’t cut the heart out of health care.”

Albertans wanting to send a valentine card to government officials can go to albertahealthmatters.ca to download a card, add their personal message and send it to any current government MLA.

The Health Sciences Association of Alberta is nearly 28,000 front-line, expertly-trained, dedicated health-care professionals who put patient care first.
