Voting to Kill Canadians VI

I really would prefer not to have to continue this series but the train wreck unfolds before your eyes. With Pfizer biting the bullet and cutting supplies, they'll play cat and mouse for awhile until either Canada steps in and stops it or Pfizer just withdraws from the country. No doubt, they won't be the only ones.

Canada, no doubt, would love to just break patent protection but if they do, they are more vulnerable to US retaliation than just about any other country on the planet. Something's got to give but I don't think it's going to be NAFTA. In the meantime, misjudgments of drug supplies are going to be inevitable and people will be severely inconvenienced or do without. Hopefully the body count won't rise too high before a solution is reached but remember, this is a train wreck that is decades in the making. Successive governments have been voting to kill canadians for a very long time. Eventually the bill comes due and actual deaths occur.

I only hope the victims aim their anger properly.
