Dear Minister,
I read, with great interest, reports that you are urging the Provinces and Territories to allow the federal government to take part in the Pan-Canadian Pharmaceutical Alliance (PCPA), to purchase and supply pharmaceuticals at lower costs, through negotiated agreements and bulk-purchasing.
