STATEMENT: Children Medication Shortages

November 15, 2022

Ottawa, ON – Matt Jeneroux, Member of Parliament for Edmonton Riverbend, released the following statement about children medication shortages:

“Our supply chains have been destroyed by the covid-19 pandemic and the refusal of this government to secure them, yet what makes this worse is that it has affected our access to our children’s medication.

“Parents shouldn’t have to wait in overcrowded waiting rooms or cross the border to get the medication our children so desperately need.

“On November 2 Pierre Poilievre called for an Emergency Debate on this issue. While American shelves are full, ours remain empty because this government has not made this an urgent priority.

“I will continue to raise this issue until we can secure the medication our children need to stay healthy this flu season.”
