Open Letter re: COVID-19 Pandemic Measures For Vulnerable Populations sent to the Federal Ministers

We are especially concerned, now that we have confirmed that community transmission is occurring, about those in East Vancouver who would fall into high-risk categories for serious impact as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, both in terms of health as well as in terms of the social indicators of health.

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."

Are you ready to take action?
