Canada is needlessly bleeding money on generic drugs

Canada is needlessly bleeding money on generic drugs

It's time to abandon the arbitrary way provinces control generic drug prices, and start using competition, as other countries do

NEWSART / ILLUSTRATION BY MARGARET SCOTT
The German language is full of incomparable nouns, like das Backpfeifengesicht. It means “a face that should be slapped.” That sums up my thoughts, and probably yours too, on the smirking mug of Martin Shkreli, the American generic drug boss who took an old, cheap medicine and raised the price to a whopping $750 a pill, over the howls of patients and doctors.
Canada has homegrown Backpfeifengesichten too, like those at Quebec’s Valeant Pharmaceutical, which suddenly raised generic drug prices by up to 2,500 per cent. And while slapping is extreme, the whole generics industry in Canada deserves the stink eye for systematically overcharging us.
Earlier this month, the federal government’s drug price watchdog, the Patented Medicine Prices Review Board, released a brilliantly researched report proving that Canada’s generic drug prices are too high: depending how one measures, typically 19 per cent to 31 per cent above prices in Europe, the U.S., Australia and New Zealand. With generic prescription drug sales totaling $5.4 billion annually, do the arithmetic and Canadians are being gouged between $1 billion and $1.67 billion.
In perspective: pull $29 to $48 out of your wallet. Per Canadian, that is how much is wasted by overpaying for generic drugs.
Why? Because of the numbskulled way that the provinces control generic drug prices. Instead of bargaining for a low price, the provinces pay an arbitrary percentage of the price charged by the company that, many years before, first marketed the drug that the generic is copying. For example, if the original drug is $1 per pill, Ontario’s Ministry of Health and Long Term Care usually aims to pays 25 per cent (so 25 cents) for the generic version. Different provinces use different percentages, but all are locked into this basic system, as are private health insurers or individual Canadians.
Naturally, this arbitrary, anti-competitive system creates opportunities for price gouging.
Take for example Apotex. Headquartered in Toronto, it calls itself “Truly Canadian,” and all its medicines come from Canada, having been manufactured or tested here. Yet oddly, Apotex’s medicines are priced lower in far-flung New Zealand than here in Ontario.
Consider Apotex’s version of amoxicillin, a basic antibiotic that just about everyone has taken: New Zealand’s government pays $0.039 per 500 mg capsule, but Ontario’s pays $0.342 — eight fold higher. Or Apotex’s version of amlodipine, a common blood pressure drug: New Zealand pays $0.027 for a 10 mg tablet, but Ontario’s $0.359 — 13 fold higher.
Something is obviously wrong when “Truly Canadian” drugs are priced in this anti-Canadian way. In principle, prices should be lower in Ontario than New Zealand, because Apotex avoids the export/import costs to the antipodes, and there are more Ontarians than Kiwis, meaning that the volume discount should work in our favor, not theirs. Yet somehow, even at New Zealand’s bargain basement prices, Apotex carries on happily doing business.
The lesson here is simple: instead of using arbitrary percentages to set prices — a uniquely Canadian stupidity that leads to us being gouged — we should use competition, as other countries do. Even in the United States, land of infamously expensive drugs, when the American government uses competition it pays less for generics than we do. I agree with the Canadian Generic Pharmaceutical Association’s call for “generic companies to compete against each other in the marketplace.” They’re right about that.
Presently, a golden political opportunity exists to solve this problem, thanks largely to Ontario Health Minister Dr. Eric Hoskins and federal Health Minister Dr. Jane Philpott. Both worked as doctors in the poorest parts of Africa; they are adept at wringing value out of a tight health budget. They are at the forefront of reviving the national health accord that Stephen Harper allowed to lapse, which includes a new working group of Canada’s health ministers addressing equitable, affordable access to appropriate medicines. That’s hard, not just because Apotex and its ilk may battle to keep their corporate welfare, but because the ministers want a solution for the 10 per cent of Canadians who cannot afford their drugs, without disrupting the private insurance market that other Canadians depend on.
The ministers’ vision deserves the support of the premiers and the prime minister. If it ends the price gouging on generic drugs, those savings could pay for getting everyone the medicines they need, so nobody goes without. Now that would be Truly Canadian.

the discriminatory hostility conservative against Iranian Canadian community

محافظه کاران کانادا صفحه ای راه اندازی کرده اند که بین ایران و اسراییل کانادا باید اسراییل را انتخاب کند من هم در ان جا به حد توانم توضیح دادم که چرا باید کانادا یک کشور را انتخاب کند باید هرد و را انتخاب کند .
در ضمن ار محافظه کاران و اسراییلی کانادایی ها خواستم که عاقلانه تصمیم بگیرندو به دشمنی با جامعه ایرانی در کانادا پایان دهند .
نوشتم بعداز توافق هسته ای وتصویب سازمان ملل شانس گفتگو را از منطقه نگیرید
نوشتم الان که سازمان ملل همه چیز را تایید کرده اگر حزب محافظه کار و اسراییلی کاناایی ها بخواهند تحریم هار ا که به جامعه ایرانی اسیب زده و می زند ادامه بدهند این یعنی تبعیض علیه شهروندان کانادا و ما علیه شما در دادگا ههای کانادا و دادگاه های بین المللی حقوق بشر شکایت خواهیم کرد

نوشتم لطفا درهای گفتگو را نبندید .


1-the question is wrong. in a multicultural country such as Canada why government shall pick between 2 courtiers in Middle East
2-ISrael Trade with Canada in 2008 , $800 mi
Iran trade with Canada $ 650miilion
because of Sanctions , in 2014 the trade with Iran under $100, and trade With Israel over $1 Billion.
3-ISraeli- Canadian are 375,000 and Iranian Canadian are 300,000
4- it is basic Canada democratic principle and charter of Right not to discriminate against any body or any group . Sanction imposed by Harper hurting Iranian Canadian community. After UN ratification of 5+1-Iran continues of sanction is a clear violation of UN resolutions and violation of UN Human rights and Canada charter of Rights, two of the past Sanctions imposed by anti Iranian minister John Baird in Israel - one Feb 2012 alongside of Irwin Cotler pro Israeli Liberal MP.
5-PC lost two seats in Richmond Hill, ON just because their Sanction against Iranian Communities. It is wise for conservative not to shot down dialogue between Iranian Canadians and the party by pursuing hostility against Iranian Canadian community
6- for Canada to have a positive role in Middle East, I t to engage actively in the peace process by promoting dialogue between Canada and Middle Eastern countries . i. If Canadian we can ignore US as a strong neighbor , then you can ignore Iran in the Middle East, too.
7- We Urge conservative and Israeli-Canadian give a chance to the international deal with Iran after Iran nuclear deal approved by UN. the continues of Hostility by PC and Israeli Lobby will push us to shot down any dialogue and take legal action in Canadian court and international human rights for discrimination against Iranian Canadian community. We forgive the hostility with Iranian Canadian community but we do not forget it.

8- We do believe many of the rights that Ethnic Canadian include Iranian Community enjoying in Canada owes to the fights and efforts of the Jewish immigrants who were denied entering into Canada in 1948 Their fights against Discrimination in 60 -70 s in Canada along side Chinese who made the CN rail Way , or Sikh , Indian , and other social activists for a fair Canada for everybody.
Discrimination is discrimination and is universal. Against Jews or Indigenous s , or Chinese who made the CN rail , or Sikh , Indian , and any faith.
We pledge wise elements in Conservative party to put Canada interest a priority than any other country as failed by Harper Government.
lest be a united , peace loving , multiculturalism Canada that solve the differences by promoting dailogu for better understanding and Equal right for every citizen. then We Can proudly to be a model for the Middle East and other conflict zones.

my letter to Andrian Clarkson , Governor General of Canada on miscalling Persian Gulf

نامه ای به خانم ادریان کلارکسون فرماندار ملکه در کانادا  در مورد تحریف خلیج فارس - 20 مارچ 2004
Honorable Adrian Clarkson
Governor General of Canada
9251 Yonge St. #219
Richmond Hill, ON L4C 9T3

March 20, 04

Dear Mrs. Clarkson

As Iranian , We are pleased to be in part of a multi culture community  and  aimed to keep it safe from any politic issue because we believe we are together here to make a safe place and peace for living .



On your March 17, 2004 interview with the C.B.C. Radio, while speaking on the issue of visiting troops in the Middle East, you referred to a place as the “Arabian” Gulf.
 

In the spirit of this healthy dialogue, we would like to point out to an issue that is very

important to Iranians and Iranian-Canadians.. We would like to mention that the correct name is the “Persian  Gulf ”. All maps, Atlases, encyclopedia, international treaties and conventions under the auspices of the United Nations, and finally, the Canadian foreign ministry refer to it as the Persian Gulf when addressing the location.
We are positive that the mislabeling was innocent slip, which does happen to all of us
occasionally.  But using wrong name without correction makes ongoing some political issue.       
In the recent decade, the Persian Gulf kingdoms have coveted and contested several Iranian islands near the southern shores of Iran; this is the context that makes the issue very charged for Iranians and Iranian-Canadians. 
 In multi-cultural societies, through public debate, research and protocol we can come to some understanding and progress.

On behalf of some Iranian –Canadians, We  would very much appreciate your attention in this sensitive matter, while addressing the location of the Persian Gulf.
Yours truly,

Saeed Soltanpour

Trump a reality of US society and government policy


Saeed Soltanpour
my comments on  CBC OntarioToday

Can you believe Donald Trump?

The litany of people Donald Trump has offended keeps growing: Muslims, Mexicans, veterans, people with disabilities. It's hard to believe he has a following. So why are you so transfixed with this candidate south of the border?

Our guest is Bryce Traister, Director for the Centre for American Studies at Western University and an expat from California.
Trump is a reality of the US society and Government policy in the past such as slavery, KKK which never been addressed within the US communities. 
dialogue has not taken or prompted serious for better understanding of the others. each side repeating their side of story without censor due to one of the best freedom tolls , Free Speech. 
As a Canadian Muslim, I know the racial remarks by Trump will trigger more Back lash against American Muslim who have been part of USA which Trump providing momentum to more violence and lack of tolerance. USA has losing the attraction for so many young people around the world for the freedom for everybody who call him/herself an American . people can survey with less food but nor freedom. 
Trump making the already divided US society into Deeper division. US will lose her credibility globally which is vital for a super power to have influence to address the conflict around the world. 

USA has been a grate nation based of Freedom which under attack within insiders which are product on internal injustice ( political and social unjust ice ) and externally b military foreign policy . 

if soviet union collapsed because they did not have freedom that the US citizens had it . they hurt themselves more than outsider sadly , US heading the same way otherwise American open up dialogue and increase tolerance . the role of government and Media are very important which take a decade to fix it. pray for that day

some politician irresponsible action , making Canada more divided

با سیاست های تفرقه افکنانه هارپر در انتخابات 2015 و شهردار می سی سیاگا در مورد ضدیت با مسجد مسلمانان و نژاد پرست خواندن مسلمانان و اینکه مسجد انیده محل خلافکاران خواهد شد ، کانادا به سمت دو قطبی شدن بین سفیدها ی نژاد پرست و اقلیت های مختلف بخصوص مسلمانان  پیش خواهد رفت . کانادا روی یک بشکه باروت هست با وجود هزاران اقلیت .
این گونه سیاستمداران رفتارمسولانه ای ندارند و باید مسولیت عواقب سیاسی و اجتماعی حرکاتشان در اینده را بپذیرند
sad with Harper propaganda machine & @BonnieCrombie look Canada heading more divided country intentionally  unintentionally,weeks about opposition to a new mosque.

By: San Grewal Urban Affairs Reporter, Published on Wed Oct 14 2015
Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie stood up in council Wednesday and adamantly declared, “I stand by the remarks I made,” refusing to apologize to a group of residents alleging she had labelled them racists for refusing to support a new mosque.
Crombie told residents — who presented a petition demanding an apology, claiming she had turned a planning issue into a race issue — that she singled out only one resident at a council meeting two weeks ago for his views.
Kevin Johnston admitted distributing literature urging people to support stopping the mosque. He claimed if the mosque is built current residents would leave in droves, creating “another Canadian cultural hole.” He argued the mosque did not fit with the neighbourhood, would drive up crime and vandalism, set back women’s rights and impact housing prices.
The brochure depicted a Canadian flag with a Muslim crescent moon and star in the middle, instead of the maple leaf, offering it as a warning to readers. He urged people to visit his website, stopthemosque.com and sign a petition.
Johnston has since changed the content of the website to focus only on planning issues.
“It was uncalled for, it was unCanadian, it was heinous and it was wrong,” Crombie responded to the group of residents demanding an apology inside the council chamber, as a much larger group that filled one side of the seats erupted in applause.
In a verbal statement at council on Wednesday Johnston said he has paid a price for his position.
“What I would also like to say here is the term hate monger was regrettably brought forth by yourself Madame Mayor. It is something that well, congratulations to you, cost me my job and also, congratulations to you, cost me the ability to work locally so I will have to probably work outside of Mississauga but I won't be leaving.”
“What I do want to say clearly to the entire Muslim community (is that) I do want to talk to you this is not something where I'm saying I am anti-Muslim, I am not anti-individual but I do know the problems that will come up with this building so if you do want to have conversations please call me," he said.
A clutch of supporters in the audience applauded his statement.
Two weeks ago, Crombie asked Johnston to answer for the statements he had published, lashing out at him for spreading intolerant views.
“You can count on me to always speak out against hateful rhetoric,” she said Wednesday.
The petition said Crombie had alleged those opposed to the mosque, “had a racist purpose or similar hidden agenda...implying that anyone disagreeing with her is a 'racist'”.
Councillors defended Crombie, stating she only singled out Johnston at the meeting two weeks ago.
Councillor Pat Saito, who represents the Meadowvale area where the proposed mosque is planned, was the only councillor who didn't support it.
Other councillors pointed out to her Wednesday that the application meets all the city's requirements and there are no grounds to oppose it.
But Saito persisted, demanding Crombie apologize to “my residents”.
Crombie pointed out that Saito's residents include the large number of Muslims who live in her ward and invited Saito to bring forward a motion demanding an apology, stating she would agree to it if council supported the motion. Saito tried, but could not get any of her council colleagues to second the motion. The motion died before it was introduced.
Shortly afterward council finalized the vote to approve the mosque.
