Starting today until September 3, CUPE Newfoundland Labrador will be running a new radio to amplify the call for universal, single-payer prescription drug coverage for everyone in Canada. Universal pharmacare is the only way to provide prescription drug coverage that doesn’t leave anyone behind.
Voiceover for the ad, which will air province-wide, was done by CUPE Newfoundland Labrador President Sherry Hillier. “Many unionized workers have prescription drug coverage through their collective agreements,” says Hillier. “This isn’t just about union members. This is about doing the right thing for everyone in Canada.”
