Meeting planned tonight in response to changes at New Denver's emegency department

Residents of the Slocan Valley have a meeting planned tonight after the news from Interior Health that hours at New Denver's emergency department will be reduced from 24/7 to 9:00am-5:00pm weekdays, excluding statutory holidays.

Colin Moss is on the Slocan District Chamber of Commerce Health Committee... He feels the change is unacceptable and says that the community plans to fight the decision.

Tonight's meeting will be held at Lucerne School in New Denver at 7:00pm.
