I just don't get it? Cheap pills for Africa, and the NDP, Liberals, and B.Q. vote in favour, but the Harper Government vote against.
Is this because Harper is getting donations from the drug companies?
I sent a request for clarification to my MP- Stephen Fletcher!
I am almost ready to mail back my Conservative membership card.

So, all that changes is it removes the permit process?

Sounds fishy to me that could be ALL that happens.

Plus at what point will our government be blamed and then sued when a bad batch goes over?

Let's provide the medications to Canadians first before we ship them elsewhere ... seems some parties are out of touch with priorities. Too many people here who cannot afford the care ...

Just more proof on how out of touch with reality some politicians are in this country.
And they get re-elected anyway. Sad

from the article its not about actually providing people with drugs its simply about removing the permit process. I would be willing to wager however there is more to it then that.

This is about allowing a "cheap" drug manufacturer being able to manufacture a "name brand" drug, at a cheap price to help some "poor" nation treat its sick citizens at Norh-End costs!

This is about a manufacturer copying a drug that someone else has created at great expense due to research and development, but not being able to recoup their developmental costs. And a bunch of politicians who use the guise that its to help a Third World country, but when everyone knows that the cheap drug will filter its way into domestic use in no time.

And they still find another new drug, if the US took the silly lawsuit settlements out of the equation the drugs could be lots cheaper. As alot of the money they get, pays for lawsuits and insurance .

That's the part they don't wish to disclose.

The effectiveness of the drug programs is an entirely different issue that isn't talked about too much as well. (Drugs do not immunize one from AIDS as many believe.)

FACTS NOT IN EVIDENSE, and probably a big plus?
Still no reason to vote against cheap drugs for Africa, unless you are a Conservative and are actively trying to kill of Africans for the better good of society?

Probably depends on what kinds of drugs will be supplied. If this is mainly for needed birth control drugs I would be very supportive as it will benefit the whole world.

If it isn't a military expense, then it must be bad? Is that the Conservative theory?
