Open Letter from Hélène Laverdière on the Defeat of Bill C-398
This past Wednesday night, Bill C-398, the Medicines for All bill, was voted down in the House of Commons by seven votes, 148 – 141. It was a very disappointing result after the many years of effort we have all undertaken to reform Canada's Access to Medicines Regime (CAMR). As you know, one child dies every three seconds in the world for want of quality medicines.
