"The report, released on Monday by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, concludes the existing patchwork of private and public plans in Canada is inequitable, inefficient and costly.
"'Canada’s pharmaceutical policies are a total failure,' the study's author, Marc-André Gagnon, told reporters on Monday in Ottawa.
"The report also finds that Canada is either the third or fourth most expensive country for brand-name drugs every year — after the United States, Switzerland and Germany — because it deliberately inflates drug prices in order to attract pharmaceutical investment."
It is not just time; it's high time!
