Mr. Speaker, a constituent on chemotherapy cannot get his decades-old drug for nausea. Another cannot afford the brand name drug to replace a missing generic. The drug shortage affects a wide range of medications.
In the U.S., President Obama just took decisive action. Yesterday, our minister was pleased that drug companies would voluntarily give notice of impending shortages.
When will the minister be pleased to get to the bottom of why Canadians are suffering from these shortages and what to do about it?
