Two news items in BC have been particularly troublesome. One patient with a rare autoimmune disease. The only treatment currently available cost an astounding 750,000 per year. This drug not covered in BC but is covered in Ontario.
I have issues with two things. First if it is available in some provinces and not others. This should be a federal issue not provincial and second why are governments not regulating pharmaceutical companies? Why are they allowed such outlandish leverage? Second issue is Drug Overdoses and how we are responding. The province has just purchased two massspectrometers for drug addicts to test drug before injecting.
What is wrong with this picture?
If you choose the behaviour you choose the consequence. They know these drugs will kill yet ignore the risks. But someone who is ill 😷 we do not help. wTH .
