On October 29, members of the Alliance for People's Health gathered at Premier Christy Clark's constituency office, escalating a grassroots campaign to expand public health care in BC so that it includes universal dental care.

40% of British Columbians are without any dental insurance, and many of the rest are under-insured. Smile With Dignity is a grassroots campaign mobilizing working class communities to fight to not solely stop the privatization of our public health care system, but to expand it.

For more information on the campaign, to sign the petition, and to share the story behind your teeth, visit: smilewithdignity.wordpress.com
