That’s a wrap: ABmunis completes series of online media events
The third and final online media event of Alberta Municipalities’ non-partisan ‘Think Alberta, Vote Local’ public information campaign took place on May 23.
It marked the end of a month-long effort to bring our members’ top three issues – Community Building, Community Safety and Community Healthcare – to the attention of political parties, candidates, and regular Albertans during the 2023 provincial general election.
Final ‘Think Alberta, Vote Local’ media event tackles healthcare
President Cathy Heron, Director Trina Jones (Towns-East) and Mayor Ren Giesbrecht from the Summer Village of West Cove took part in the Community Healthcare media event. They spoke passionately about the numerous challenges ABmunis’ 275 member communities face when it comes to ensuring residents have access to primary medical care, laboratories, and Emergency Medical Services (EMS).
Mayor Giesbrecht shared a short story from a nearby community during the event to illustrate some of the difficulties regular Albertans experience when navigating Alberta’s complex healthcare system.
