In hopes of keeping Kitsilano’s only youth clinic open, people are rallying outside the centre on West Fourth today.
MLA David Eby says Vancouver Coastal Health is making a mistake in closing the Pine Free Clinic – and consolidating services into the Raven Song Community Centre.
“I don’t understand what the problem is that’s being solved by closing these clinics they do a really wonderful job in our community. And we’re hoping they’re going to reconsider.”
Pine is one of four clinics scheduled to close in October.
Eby is hoping today’s rally will encourage the government to take a serious second look at closing the clinics.
