In the coming days, UCP MLA Tany Yao will be tabling Bill 204: Voluntary Blood Donations Repeal Act. With this bill, MLA Yao intends to repeal Bill 3: Voluntary Blood Donations Act, which was put into place in Alberta in 2017 to protect and enshrine blood and plasma as public resources under law, and to prohibit them from being treated as a market-based commodity. In the midst of an ongoing pandemic, Alberta could begin allowing for-profit brokers, introducing unnecessary competition to voluntary donations and threatening our blood and plasma supply. Join Friends of Medicare and guests, Kat Lanteigne and Michele Brill-Edwards, for an online conversation as we discuss the importance of keeping our blood collection system voluntary and public, and consider the current threat Bill 204 poses to Canada’s blood and plasma supply.
