Parliament Video: Jenny in the House: Will the PM put people before politics & support the NDP's Universal Public Pharmacare Bill?

On February 24, 2021, Jenny asked the Prime Minister about Pharmacare in Question Period:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, Canada is the only high-income country with a universal health care system that does not include the universal coverage of prescription drugs. We also pay the third-highest prices in the world for prescription medications. All MPs have a chance to change that by supporting the NDP's universal public pharmacare bill. We need to put partisanship aside and work together for Canadians across the country.

Will the Prime Minister put people before politics, end the Liberals' 24 years of empty rhetoric on universal public pharmacare and follow expert advice so that millions of Canadians can finally get the medications they need?"
