Today I donated $250 to my local @NDP campaign.

Why $250? Because that's the amount my family spent last month on insulin and diabetes supplies without #Pharmacare.

Do you think Canada can't afford Pharmacare? Give me 4 minutes to explain why we can't afford not to. 1/ #cdnpoli
First, let's touch on why #Pharmacare is important. This may seem obvious, but we often seem to forget that for the vast majority of medical conditions:

Medication is what makes you better!

Going to a doctor without a charge is grand, but... 2/ #cdnpoli
Going to the doctor isn't very useful if you can't afford what they prescribe.

And the reality is that many Canadians can't. 1 in 20 Canadians don't take prescribed medications because they can't afford it. Nearly as many don't heat their homes or skip meals... 3/ #cdnpoli

My take on #Election2019, is one that will surprise all #Canadians who will take the #time to read past this #headline. It will be a #long #series of #tweets that will be #purely #honest & straight to the #point.
This #series of tweets will contain #jabs at #voters, the #media & our #political #parties & they are #jabs, that in my own #opinion are #merited. Agree or don’t agree, I won’t care, but it needs to be said to ease my conscience in the lead up to our election!
In 2015, Canada’s #media, declared that #Trudeau & .@liberal_party outflanked the @NDP on leftist policies & for the 1st time in recent history the media supported large deficits & destruction of our country’s finances over a more balanced approach. Let’s stop here for a sec.

Who else will be at the #YVR community dialogue session on national pharmacare tonight? 🙋🏻
Two years ago I attended the public consultation for federal disability legislation. Even though it took a long-ass time for the Accessible Canada Act to be proposed afterward, the consultation itself was one of the most memorable and edifying events I've ever attended.
That consultation—and the one tonight—never would have happened under the Conservatives. Every day I'm grateful that Harper's not PM anymore. The prospect of being back under the Cons terrifies me, but it's a real possibility 'cause Trudeau didn't follow through on #ERRE.
