Madam Speaker, this is from a report of a few years ago on the estimated effects of adding universal public coverage of an essential medicines list to existing public drug plans in Canada. It stated that 117 essential medicines on the model list accounted for 44% of all prescription drug expenditures in 2015. It is a very small group of medications that cost so much. We do not talk about that here. We are talking about everything; one model to fit them all.
The member talks about how much money we will save. The only way to save money on national pharmacare would be on the backs of rare disease patients because they would have to be cut off from that medication in order to save pennies and dollars. They will wind up in an emergency room because they will not have access to the medications they need.
