TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:
Whereas prescription medications are a part of health care, and people shouldn’t have to empty their wallets or rack up credit card bills to get the medicines they need;
Whereas over 2.2 million Ontarians don’t have any prescription drug coverage and one in four Ontarians don’t take their medications as prescribed because theycannot afford the cost;
Whereas taking medications as prescribed can save lives and help people live better; and
Whereas Canada urgently needs universal and comprehensive national Pharmacare;
We, the undersigned, petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to support a universal provincial Pharmacare plan for all Ontarians.
