I would like to share with you that we are going to be launching the campaign for pharmacare website soon. This is a project that grew out of my candidacy in the federal NDP leadership race. Following the leadership race, there was a group of people who asked me to keep this particular issue going because we all felt that many Canadians would benefit from having their medications covered. Currently, there are over 3 million Canadians who do not have any drug coverage at all. The other thing that we knew was that if the pharmacare plan was well constructed and properly implemented, not only would we be able to cover the medication costs for those who have no coverage, but that this could be accomplished while still reducing the costs of medications for all Canadians and provincial and federal governments.

We have been very fortunate to have had a number of different people and groups come together to make this campaign a reality. The list is long and we thank you all for your efforts. Please take some time to go through the website and the videos that we will be releasing over the next few months. If you have questions or stories that you would like to share with us, please feel free to send them along.

Cheers,

Martin

This article will be the first in what I hope will be a series of articles ranging on topics as diverse as pharmacare and other health care issues, business and economic policy, the environment, and anything else that comes to mind.  To start, I hope to share with you in the first few articles the challenges and opportunities that exist for those of us who work towards the goal of a national pharmacare program for all Canadians.  As with any subject focused on a specific area, there is vocabulary particular to the professions involved or topics being discussed.  I will try to demystify the words being used to the best of my ability.  In those cases where you have questions, seek clarity, or want to share possible corrections about what I have written, please feel free to share your thoughts with me.
