Parliament Video: Jenny in the House: 93% of Canadians care about bringing in universal public Pharmacare now

On November 20, 2020, Jenny rose in Question Period to ask:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Madam Speaker, last night, at 2 a.m., the Liberal parliamentary secretary for housing responded to a post promoting the NDP pharmacare bill with “WGAF”. It would be unparliamentary for me to expand on the acronym, but it basically means who really cares. The answer is 93% of Canadians care, including those who have to chose between paying their rent, putting food on the table and buying medicine they need.

Is the real reason why Canadians still do not have universal public pharmacare, after 23 years of Liberal promises, because the Liberals simply do not care?"
