Medicare's Birth in Saskatchewan: 50th Anniversary of a People's Victory
The two articles re-published in this pamphlet were written to address the 50th anniversary of North America's first public healthcare system for all citizens initiated in Saskatchewan on July 1, 1962.
We were researching the prolific resources and books available on the subject in preparation for a forthcoming book on the fight for medicare in Saskatchewan and wanted to raise the profile of the anniversary as the actual anniversary approached.
This pamphlet is intended as a short and quick resource for labour and health care activists as we celebrate 50 years of medicare.
