Across the country—and here in Parkdale—High Park—people are making impossible choices every day—cutting pills in half, choosing between paying rent on time or filling their prescription, or going without the drugs they need altogether.

We don’t want to go back to the way things were - we want to build things better than they were.
We want to build universal pharmacare so everyone will be covered—just like our universal healthcare. And now we have the chance to make this a reality. Our proposal would make pharmacare free for Canadians.
If Justin Trudeau’s Liberals want to help Canadian families, they can work with us to deliver the universal pharmacare plan people need.
Will you add your voice to call for universal pharmacare?
