The final hour of debate on the Canada Pharmacare Act C213 was held in the House of Commons last week. There are indications that Liberals are thinking of opposing Bill C-213. A decision to vote no will have devastating effects on the hopes of millions of Canadians who are making impossible choices every day because they cannot afford their prescription medication. A no vote, of course, means that Liberal MPs would be:
  • Rejecting public and universal Pharmacare being included under the Canada Health Act framework.
  • Rejecting the clear recommendations made by the Hoskins’ report to establish with provincial governments a universal, public Pharmacare program. 
  • Breaking their own 2019 election promise of universal Pharmacare. 
On the voting day, Wednesday, February 24, KTC members are invited to join our Pharmacare Vote E Watch Party and a Post-Vote Rally via zoom. The event will begin at 12:00-1:30 PM PST.
