Bill C-393

So the house of commons last week passed bill c-393 to rework Canada’s access to medicines regime. A piece of legislation that would allow Canadian generic drug companies to provide drugs to multiple countries under a single liscence. These drugs would be used to combat aids/hiv among other diseases. Currently the legislation needs to pass the senate before it will come into effect. If the senate does not pass it before an election which by most accounts is very likely to happen in the immediate future, the bill will be killed. I ask that any of you that read this blog take a few minutes to send a message to the Canadian senate to pass this bill. Its easy to do simply follow this link, fill in your name and click send. http://www.avaaz.org/en/save_lives/?fpla
