Pamela Walden-Landry of the Montreal GRANs gets set to mail letters introducing GRAN to Quebec MPs.  



This month our actions reflect our continuing concerns about the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), as well as our commitment to spreading the word about the MSF global campaign to reduce the price of the pneumococcal vaccine.

  2. Have you emailed your friends and family, wherever they may live, to encourage them to sign MSF’s A Fair Shot petition?   Direct them to:
  3. Find a way to make International Women’s Day, Tuesday, March 8, memorable.  Join with others in community events and actions.
