Pauline Marois has stopped the funding for the life-saving cancer medication, Xeloda.
The premier of Quebec controls the taxpayers' Medicare funds and she decides who lives and who dies in Quebec.
Will it be as it was for Negro people in the U.S.A,, "separate but equal" - which means the rich will now get the real medicine - the tested and very successful, Xeloda - and all other cancer patients will get to be guinea pigs for the generic version? Maybe you live - maybe not. Wait and see.
What is Canada without Medicare? It is Quebec.
What does the Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper, have to say to cancer patients in Quebec who are not rich?
Will he make fancy political excuses? Will he stall, mislead - smile a lot? Or will Stephen Harper do the usual and just pretend he isn't home? He usually isn't.
Want to bet our Prime Minister will say, "This is not in my jurisdiction" ? Watch him.
What is Canada without Medicare? It is Quebec. Thanks to the absent Stephen Harper.
