OTTAWA — NDP Health Critic Don Davies is calling for an investigation into Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos’ direct involvement in shelving reforms intended to save Canadians billions of dollars on prescription medicines. A new report reveals that, following numerous exchanges with pharmaceutical giants, the minister personally asked the Patented Medicines Prices Review Board (PMPRB), Canada’s independent and arms-length regulator, to suspend reforms that would lower the price of medication for Canadians.
B.C. MP Don Davies called Broadbent a "pillar of the NDP."
"His legacy of fighting for justice, equality, and a better Canada will forever inspire us," Davies said on X.
