Congratulations Stephen: you have finally shaken my certainty in voting for the Conservatives, and I'm a card-carrying member. And oh, I seriously doubt that this move will really help the party: if I wanted nationalized Pharmacare, I'd vote for the NDP and wait for the Liberal minority to take me there.
I guess there is such thing as a race to the bottom, but it has nothing to do with "market forces". The health care debate is over before it even started. Maybe I should be thankful.If there's any consolation, though, there's this line from Pierre Pettigrew:
"But as you know with the catastrophic drug plan, we're already ahead on that one. And we continue to provide the leadership on that front, you can count on it," said Pettigrew.Okay, I know that's not what a "catastrophic drug plan" means, but I can't help but notice how those words work so well together... ....
