Tick, tock, tick, tock.

With less than three-weeks to go, the Trudeau Liberals and Singh New Democrats must reach an agreement on a framework for pharmacare or the political agreement the two signed in 2022 will be broken and cease to exist.



The supply-and-confidence deal as it’s known means the NDP will support the minority government on key votes in return for progress on shared priorities, such as pharmacare.

The Liberals agreed to table and pass pharmacare legislation by the end of 2023.

Negotiations over what the bill should contain stalled and the two parties extended the deadline to March 1.

Judging by Singh’s comments, his hopes seem to be fading as the date approaches.

”What happens if they (Liberals) break the agreement, then there is no agreement in place. Then we are not in anyway required to continue to provide any support if they break their side of the agreement,” says the NDP leader.

Singh adds New Democrats would still be open to working with the government on a case-by-case basis on legislation they agree on.
