NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh on pharmacare, rail blockades, Teck Frontier mine cancellation



At a news conference in Ottawa, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh announces his party will table its pharmacare legislation later in the day in the House of Commons. The NDP had pledged during the October federal election to implement a national, universal pharmacare program. Singh is also asked about ongoing rail blockades across the country and Teck Resources’ withdrawal of their regulatory application to build the proposed Frontier oilsands mine in Alberta. The Vancouver-based company’s announcement comes as the federal cabinet was expected to announce its decision this week on the project.
