American corporate greed is inflating Canadian drug prices
« on: January 20, 2019, 02:31:50 pm »
It appears that the pharmaceutical distribution industry in Ontario is violating the law and increasing our drug prices by about 40%. The biggest violator is McKesson, who also own the retail entities Guardian, IDA, and Uniprix. They are giving illegal kickbacks to retail pharmacies in the range of 50%-70% the cost of the drug. They need to be brought to court, and have all their assets confiscated and the executive, directors, and sales department put in jail.

Does Doug Ford have the guts?

waldo googly: 'Greed is a powerful weapon': Are illegal kickbacks in Ontario driving up the cost of your generic drugs?

McKesson Canada president Paula Keays:

McKesson Canada does not pay rebates in Ontario and any assertion to the contrary is blatantly false. {The payments McKesson makes are} fully in line with all current provincial regulations and {are} one of the ways independent pharmacies operate and improve services for patients, like installing blood pressure monitoring stations, introducing new technologies and automating services to allow for patient counselling. These are standard business agreements and are entirely appropriate.
