Voting: An Access to Medicines Perspective

If you’re looking for the most access to medicines friendly party in this election, I’d say the NDP is looking pretty good right now.

Jack Layton has done two monumental things for C-393 so far in my opinion. In the English language debate he noted the audacity of the Senate to block a bill passed by the House of Commons. Then, in his official party platform, he explicitly states that his party will aim to remove the red tape for the export of generics. –> http://www.ndp.ca/platform/leadership-on-world-stage#section-6-3

You might also notice that on the newly launched www.aidsaction.ca, the NDP have all endorsed C-393, contrast that with the rest of the parties. Hmm…look’s like someone’s got their priorities straight.
