In Halifax Terry Bremner and colleagues with the Chronic Pain Association of Canada organized a demonstration asking for humane treatment of humans and making the point that veterniarians get 5 times more training in pain assessment and treatment than people docs. CBC TV and the provincial health critic attended and the Halifax Chronicle Herald ran a big story as well as an opinion editorial.

We welcome all members to send along photos and brief comments of local activities they have organized.
