Universal pharmacare needed

Dear Editor,

I’m struggling to afford medications, and as a senior, I’m not alone in this situation. This time of year is particularly tough for people like me.
It shouldn’t have to be this way.
There is a huge opportunity for the new minority government to implement universal, single-payer pharmacare. The Liberals promised to make this happen and the NDP are fully behind it.

Many healthcare experts, small businesses and unions are 100 per cent for it. It will save Canada billions of dollars.
Millions of Canadians are waiting for this historic step. It’s the unfinished business of healthcare. It’s about time the government gets this done.
