Ms. Libby Davies (Vancouver East, NDP):
Mr. Speaker, it is a problem the minister is not willing to tackle.
On March 14 of this year, the House voted unanimously in favour of an NDP motion to mitigate the drug shortage crisis.
The motion called for the government to “develop a nationwide strategy to anticipate, identify, and manage shortages of essential medications”.
It sure looks like the government failed when it came to Zarontin.
Now families are struggling to cope.
What is the government's plan to get this crucial drug into the hands of Canadians who desperately need it?
