Facts: Trudeau shot down universal pharmacare. He doesn't want to help people with drug coverage, even though his party has been advocating it for over 20 years.

Did he "shoot it down" because he can't get it done or because he doesn't want to?  He doesn't have the power on his own to do it, it only happens if all the provinces are on board.  He can only broker a deal with premiers that are willing.

The NDP aren't in any position to put forward any bill on pharmacare.  They aren't the government in power, they don't have any ability to negotiate a deal for national pharamcare with the provinces.  It's a pipe dream for any non-governing party.
I queef, therefore I am.
