Jagmeet Singh says the Liberals must pass pharmacare legislation this year — but health minister makes no promises

The minister has defended his actions, stating he does not provide direction to the board but does participate in consultations before new guidelines for drug prices are issued. On Tuesday, Duclos’s office said it was the minister’s “duty to work with all actors, from patients and … the industry, to make sure Canadians have access to the medication and vaccines they need.”

Even so, there’s “no doubt that Minister Duclos and the Liberal government are being pressured by other forces,” Davies said.

“What we want to do is add some pressure on the other side of this. Do I trust them? Yes. And I hope that they will do the right thing.”
