Truth Tracker: Where the parties stand on pharmacare
TORONTO -- As Canada's population ages, calls for universal pharmacare are growing, especially among low-income seniors.
The NDP has promised $10 billion per year to create a national pharmacare program, including dental coverage.
The other two major parties have been vague in their pharmacare commitments. The Liberals have promised $6 billion over four years, with a pledge to negotiate with provinces.
The Conservatives, meanwhile, have pledged to increase health transfer payments and buy bulk generic drugs to lower costs.
CTV’s Richard Madan takes a closer look at the costing of pharmacare.
