When Immigration Minister Jason Kenney shows up to speak in Edmonton, he'll be greeted by a lemonade stand.
Chances are, he won't be thirsty.
Members of the 59 cents Campaign for Refugee Healthcare will put up the mock stand in protest of cuts to refugee health benefits.
Kathryn Lennon with Public Interest Alberta says there is strong opposition to the government's effort to save a few bucks.
"We've seen eight of the major medical associations across Canada openly oppose these cuts to refugee healthcare. We're seeing that there is a clear expression of concern and outrage."
Lennon adds the cuts will hurt the most vulnerable people in our society.
"The most negative effect will be felt by refugee claimants, who are in the most precarious situation."
The lemonade will be sold for 59¢ a cup, about the same amount of money per person that is supposed to be saved by making the cuts. (kdr)
