Municipalities need help

Municipal workers are on the frontlines going flat out to deliver the public services that keep us safe during COVID-19. But responding to this pandemic has left municipal governments in financial crisis. Their revenues have collapsed and unanticipated costs are soaring. Without financial help, municipalities will be forced to cut the vital local services our families and communities rely upon…

Push back – call your MP

Word on Parliament Hill has it that the insurance industry is lobbying hard. It wants the federal government to cover the insurance of recently laid off workers. That would be instead of adopting universal, single-payer pharmacare. It’s up to us to make sure MPs know that’s just not on. Call your MP using this simple tool. We’ve got talking points…

Call the banks now

Tell your bank that it is in times of a crisis; true leaders step up and take action to support those who support them. Millions of Canadians have lost their primary source of income.

Pharmacare: Taking care of business

In a recent survey by Ekos Research, 8 in 10 business owners agreed with the following statement: “Prescription drugs should be covered as part of our public health care system, the same way that hospitals and doctors are covered.” A strong majority of business owners support universal pharmacare, just like the majority of Canadians. For years, business owners have been…

Tell the CPhA: Waive extra dispensing fees at pharmacies

In the middle of this pandemic, the Canadian Pharmacists Association determined that pharmacies should limit refills to 30 days instead of 90. This is intended to reduce possible drug shortages. Problem is, that decision hurts Canadians because instead of paying one dispensing fee for a 90-day refill, people now have to pay the dispensing fee every month for each 30-day…

If not now, when?

Even before this pandemic, 1 in 4 Canadians had inadequate drug coverage or none at all. Today, mass layoffs have left millions of more Canadians without workplace drug benefits.  This means many people will have to stretch their medications or skip them all together. Tell the Prime Minister and your Premier it’s time for universal, single-payer pharmacare.

Urgent action on racism

The federal government needs to step up by fulfilling its election promise to double funding for anti-racism strategies. It’s time for our governments to confront racism, not just talk about it.

Tell the banks – enough is enough

Enough is enough. The Bank of Canada has just reduced its lending rate to the big banks to a historically low level. The government and Canadians expected this to lead to debt relief for average people. Yet the banks refuse to pass these savings onto Canadian families. Join us and tell the big banks to stop gouging Canadians and lower…

Tell your bank. Send a tweet now.

We’re all making sacrifices to get through this challenging time – everyone except Canada’s big banks. Canadians pay some of the highest rates in the entire world, often at about 20% or even higher. Year after year, the big banks make billions in profits off the backs of working Canadians. They turn around and pay their CEOs huge bonuses with…
