Federal Liberal and Conservative party governments have consistently allowed us to remain the world’s sole country that has universal healthcare but does not similarly cover prescribed medication, however necessary. 

Assuming the recent Throne Speech is not just another hollow promise of universal medication coverage, why has it taken so long for a Canadian federal government to implement one? 

(And considering it’s a potential life-and-death issue, why has our news-media not pursued it far more than it has? Or is there an over-reliance on Big Pharma advertisement revenue?) 

Not only does this make medication affordability much harder, but many low-income outpatients who cannot afford to fill their prescriptions end up back in the hospital system thus costing far more than if their generic-brand medication was covered. 

Wouldn't logic say that we cannot afford to maintain such an absurdity that costs Canada billions extra annually?

It’s not coincidental that the absence of universal medication coverage also keeps the pharmaceutical industry’s profits soaring.  

Without doubt, its Ottawa lobbyists—who immediately went into full gear talking our government out of implementing a universal generic-brand medication coverage plan—are very much worth their bloated salaries.
