PHARMACARE: A PLAN FOR EVERYONE
Canada’s unions are throwing their might behind this issue because far too many Canadians are struggling to pay for even basic medicines. But big pharma is fighting back in a big way.
They’re flooding social media and the country’s newspapers claiming that changes to drug pricing would mean less research, development, and cutting-edge drugs.
It’s simply not true, but their attacks prove that we’ve successfully made this into a national, urgent issue. While we have the pressure on, I need you to send a quick email to your MP telling them you support universal pharmacare.
Canadians pay some of the highest rates in the world for medications that can be purchased for far, far less in other countries.
Universal pharmacare would allow for bulk purchasing—allowing everyone with a health care plan to access the medications they need, while saving all of us, governments included, billions of dollars.
You can join them by sending your MP an email today with this simple tool:
Let’s put big pharma formally on notice: We’re going to win this.
