Duclos was asked Tuesday by NDP Health Critic Don Davies if he put a specific number on the table with his provincial counterparts, but he didn’t reveal one.

Canadian Health Minister Resists Florida’s Plan to Import Cheaper Pharmaceuticals Amidst Concerns Over Drug Supply

NDP MP Don Davies has suggested that the Canadian government should establish a public manufacturer of critical medications and vaccines to ensure the stability of the nation’s drug supply. This move could safeguard against potential shortages and disruptions caused by external factors, such as foreign importation plans.

Federal health minister says he won't allow Florida to 'pillage' the drug supply

NDP MP Don Davies, the party's health critic, said drug shortages have "long been a serious problem in Canada." Citing past shortages of things like EpiPens and children's pain medication, he said Ottawa should establish a "public manufacturer" of critical medications and vaccines.

Davies also said Canada "should not be allowing the export of medicines to the U.S. unless we have a stable supply for domestic use."
