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 they cannot afford the cost;
- WHEREAS taking medications as prescribed can save lives and help people live better;
- 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.
