Caravan to Canada ... for Affordable Meds

Minnesota mom Lija Greenseid recently led a caravan to the Canadian border on a quest for insulin her daughter’s Type 1 diabetes.
Outraged by the near-doubling in cost of insulin in the US in recent years, she organized a small group of Americans to Ontario, where they paid a fraction of the US price tag.
US officials warn such steps breach FDA guidelines, but Greenseid and others hope their trip will show how America’s system has pushed them to extremes. “When you have a bad health-care system, it makes good people feel like outlaws,” Greenseid said. “It’s demeaning. It’s demoralizing. It’s unjust.”
