Each day in Canada, the government effectively puts a dollar value on people's lives by deciding which medications to cover. The issues of coverage and cost are magnified exponentially when it comes to expensive drugs for rare diseases. On one side, we have the rights of sick people to access medicine; and on the other, companies saying they have a right to make profit. Can we resolve this challenge fairly without accepting the prospect that some Canadians are just too expensive to help?
