Petition launched to make paramedics an essential service

A petition has been launched, calling for paramedics to be included with fire and police when it comes to collective bargaining.

Currently, paramedics and dispatchers are covered under a separate act from police and fire.

Paramedic Josh Henshaw started the petition, which has been registered with Elections BC.

If enough signatures are collected, the petition is forwarded to the province for consideration.
