“These changes to the way we price drugs in Canada would have an immediate impact and help millions of Canadians,” Davies added.

“Mr. Davies, you’ve come forward with wanting to put a call out for a criminal probe into the cases of Indigenous women who have had forced sterilization.”

“Canadians have waited long enough. Access to medically necessary dental care should be a right in this country, not a privilege. It’s time to roll up our sleeves and begin the work necessary to make this overdue health care service a reality for all Canadians.”

In December Vancouver-Kingsway MP Don Davies asked what steps the Liberals were taking “to ensure that all Canadians can access medically necessary dental care.”

NDP health critic Don Davies warned Canada is at the “very cusp” of uncovering serious human-rights abuses affecting vulnerable women including those who are Indigenous, those living with disabilities and those who have low incomes.

Closely examining the magnitude of the problem has been a concern for advocacy organizations and MPs, including NDP health critic Don Davies.

“We are talking about alleged torture and widespread systemic assaults on women — very vulnerable women,” said Davies, following a hearing on the issue before the House’s health committee.

“The NDP’s health critic has decided that he’ll try for a fourth term in Parliament.”

“I’ve long thought that dental care was a serious omission from our universal health-care system that doesn’t make any sense from a public health or social justice point of view,” the NDP MP for Vancouver-Kingsway said in a recent interview.

“Forced sterilization is an appalling form of violence against women and it’s critical that we investigate these horrific acts without delay,” NDP Health Critic Don Davies (Vancouver – Kingsway) said in a release.
