Advocates pan gov't drug changes November 4, 2011

Provincial groups outraged by province's decision to double senior medicine costs 

In one case of which Cassista is personally aware, a resident of a senior's home who is left with $135 per month after her rent is paid will now have about $90 per month left for her simple pleasures of a trip downtown once a week or so and maybe a perm every few months.

"It's alarming. It's just appalling," Cassista said.
