Write to the Chair of the Advisory Council ✍


CLC Logo

It’s crunch time. The Advisory Council on the Implementation of National Pharmacare is about to report back to the government.

Big Pharma and insurance industries are spending big bucks to lobby for a “fill-in-the-gaps" model. Let’s make sure that we challenge their self-serving efforts.

You can write to the Chair of the Advisory Council, Dr. Eric Hoskins, right now. Tell him that half-measures and band-aid solutions won’t work.

How you're making a difference in the last 7 days




This referendum is a nail biter. Every poll puts the two sides neck in neck, with Too Close to Call predicting that if the ballots were counted on November 24, the NO side would win by just 2%. But the important news is: The ballots from ridings where people are most likely to vote YES are arriving and we're gaining momentum!!

Here's how you are making the difference:

The Phone Bank - friendly calling

We can't stress strongly enough how the volunteers making these calls are the most powerful tool we have to win this referendum.
