Big citizens’ demonstration to save the Lachine hospital

Posted by

Over a thousand citizens answered the call of a citizens’ committee and showed up at the March 18 demonstration in front of the hospital

There was, of course, Dr. Saba and some other doctors.  There were the mayors of all the West Island municipalities, even those with an English-speaking majority, and there were a few representatives of provincial MLAs.

It was a great family event.  We need more of them. The participants understood this and we will not give up.  

Our event was very well followed by the major media, both English and French.  Here is the list of links related to our event.
