The Fraser Institute claims the federal government isn't using facts when discussing universal pharmacare. It turns out they may want to look in the mirror before accusing others of spreading inaccurate information.

In an embarrassing oversight in a Hill Times op-ed, the Fraser Institute mistakingly referred to Nova Scotia as the home province of Minister of Health Ginette Petitpas Taylor, when she is in fact from New Brunswick and represents Moncton—Riverview—Dieppe.

The mistake was made while defending Canada's current regime of expensive drug coverage, claiming the government is "misinformed" or "purposefully misleading" Canadians about the proposed pharmacare plan.
