Lower price for insulin in Canada
There's a story today on local stations of our national radio how a group of people from Indiana came up to London, Ontario today or a few days ago to buy insulin.
The report was that one or several or (I think) all were able to buy it without prescription.
The report said that one of them bought a quantity that would have cost her $2,000 in Indiana for $243. and change at a local WM.
The lady telling about it said that they came here especially to pay tribute to Dr. Banting, who with Dr. Best, was the discoverer of insulin, and his home in London has been made into a memorial.
It is my understanding that he gave away the instructions without compensation, as it was greatly needed by many ... and still is. Too bad that a number of rascals are making major profits from that insulin, the formula for which I think that he gave away free.
There was a group in Indiana where they learned of the opportunity.
I'm going to www.cbc.ca to see whether I can find more info.
