Off to Shoppers to buy pepsi, the single choc bars on offer and cold pills ("NOT flu pills").

Back he comes with flu pills and the choc bars that instead of being the size on offer @ 75c each he has those that are 50% bigger but $2 each.  :o

Half the value. :(
Statement by the P.M,of Canada on Diwali,‘Festival of Lights,’Corporal Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent.

October 23, 2014 , Ottawa, Ontario

Prime Minister Stephen Harper today issued the following statement on Diwali:

“Laureen and I would like to extend our best wishes to those celebrating Diwali across the country and around the world.

“Also known as the ‘Festival of Lights,’ Diwali is celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and Buddhists. It is a time when family and friends gather to celebrate the triumph of light over darkness and of good over evil. It also marks the end of the harvest season and a period of renewal, providing an occasion to recognize the good fortunes of the previous year, and to remember those less fortunate than ourselves.

“With this in mind, let us acknowledge the tragic events that have taken place this past week, and extend our deepest sympathies to the families of Corporal Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent.

“These events are grim reminders that Canada is not immune to the types of attacks we have seen elsewhere around the world. It is imperative that we, as a free and democratic people who embrace human dignity for all, continue to defend our values against those who seek to undermine them.

“In light of recent events, the celebration of Diwali is timely. On behalf of all Canadians, I wish everyone celebrating today a happy, healthy, meaningful and safe Diwali.”

I started taking my laptop to bed with me. Not only does it make a nifty little heater, I can set the background to show a picture of a nice warm beach.

Honest.....there is a beach somewhere in that picture.  :)

At the Walmart pharmacy, I have seen a notice that says they will automatically substitute a generic drug for the brand name unless the patient says not to.....
When any pharmacy is filling a brand prescription for a client of the NBPDP, something on their computer already shows the province will be billed, so why not automatically (as with Walmart) process the generic one?

It appears that this may actually be happening after all. When one was available, the generic has always been the one given to us under the NBPDP.

Recently, the province cancelled mine saying that while my wife was still covered I could use the new system instead - despite the fact I can't afford it for reasons stated in another thread.

Our doc recently wrote a prescription for the same drug for both of us. The drug was not covered for me as I was cancelled and for others it was not "approved" by the appropriate authority unless one pays for it oneself. Funny how they disapprove or restrict something unless you're wealthy enough to pay isn't it.  >:(

Anyway, it was $80 a month. Too much.

My wife was eventually eligible for "special authority" coverage so we were able to get it for her.

Upon collecting it we noticed the full price was $55 for three months.

Still a NBPDP client, they substituted a generic which is fair enough but availability as a generic wasn't offered to me. Had it been, I would obviously have chosen to pay $55 for three months supply of something instead of not paying $80 for one month.

So used to the pharmacy giving me generic meds, I just assumed that the $80 quoted was the going rate for the prescribed drug. I feel a bit let down by this.

How often does it happen that someone has chosen to go without a prescription because the cheaper alternative wasn't made known?

Did anybody ever get sworn at from a politician? To misquote the late PET "Fuddle Wuddle".

Outside Moncton Hospital entrance, near the smoking area a patient falls from a wheelchair. From the looks of her, she appears to be a cancer patient so perhaps not very wise to go out and smoke.

Especially as nobody from the hospital will enable this by attending.

Of course, everyone likes - needs? - their unwise comforts.

Anyway, a concerned witness goes to the desk inside the building and is told that as it's outside the building, they'll call 911.

An ambulance - possibly from 50 yards away - arrives and the paramedics then help her to the smoking area. In between some others helped her up.

Is this a result of some litigation - wherever it may have occurred - whereby hospital staff helped someone outside, something went wrong and the hospital was subsequently sued?
