"Only other. The only other knockout I'd add to the list was no yeah, in a way is knock out of nonito Daenerys in the second in their rematch. You're right. Again, and over the whole done air that we call it as it is. And over the hill down there, over the whole guys, older guys veteran guys, great guys. Don't do well in rematches when they launched the first one to a young great fighter. They don't. I could point to a lot of examples. One of them is Rocky Marciano and the great Jersey Joe Walcott. Jersey Joe walker and there's a lot of them or guel and prior. There's a lotto. Was the tarver knockout of Roy Jones in their second fight? Yeah, that was yeah, that was the second one. That's a good point. Yeah, those second one, right? Yeah. Yeah, those are good point. There's a lot of them. Like I said, there's a disease to them. And Jersey Joe walked out in Marciano's a great one. 13 rounds, the great wall car who was heavyweight champion at the time. He's ahead on old school courts, you know, in the 13th round, the only way most piano can win is by not counting, was he out of knocks him out. You know, devastating. And the second fight, the rematch, some people think it's going to be another great one. Nope. Nope. The old Walcott. He can't do it. He only got one of those magical nights in you at that age. And he couldn't do it no more. You know, mentally or physically. And I'd say mentally first. You know, he figured he did everything he could. What's he going to do this time? He didn't win the first time. What's he going to do this time? And he gets knocked out in the first round by Walcott. I mean, by monse. And then same thing we're all quite own prior. Great fight were to go 14 rounds, whatever what great fight, unbelievable fight with the great old guillo. Then prior. But he does everything he can he still gets knocked out by prior the first 5 second fight. Nowhere near being competitive as the first one and of course prior knocks him out. And as you said, also in a way end on air. And as you also said, Jones Roy Jones junior was November of O three, Roy Jones gets a majority decision at Mandalay over Antonio tovar 6 months later in May of O four Antonio tyrosine venue Mandalay bay Antonio tarver knocks him out cold for the first time Roy then went on to lose about 6 fights after that. Once they had chin got cracked, it was like the beginning of Glen called drugs and Glen called Johnson knocked him out after that. Yeah. Immediately after then Antonio beat him with a unanimous decision right after that. He lost three in a roll Roy Jones, who at the time of the first Antonio tower he looked unbeatable prior to that first Antonio to have her fight. He was just destroying everyone. There's probably an X Factor in there. We don't make no excuses, but we point out everything we x-ray everything over here. We do the cat scan. And you know, Jones had gone up to heavyweight to beat John Ruiz for one of those heavyweight belts. And then came back down and wait. Going up, says he later in your life. Going up and wait like that. And then, you know, putting on all that, not just wait for muscle. And then having to take it off and come back down to light heavyweight. That that could be a problem. That can be a physical problem. And you could almost connect his downward spiral a little bit. Also, when he got older, his reflexes won't the same. And he was a fighter like Ali, who depended on reflexes. That first however fight that he won by a majority decision was the first fight after John Ruiz, so he won a controversial decision, then got knocked out cold due to the probably having something to do with the weight. Gaining loss. And when you get older Ken and you're dependent like Allie and Jones, you're dependent on reflexes and speed, timing, you know, to get away from punches, you do things not technically correct. You just do them because of your greatness and those areas, you get away with it. And then you get a little old and you reflexes betray you. They betray you a little bit. And you're not getting away. Those pods that you went like this and you went like this, you like this, and they just missed now they land. Then now they land. And now the things you do wrong from a technical approach, you start to pay for a price because now you get caught. But anyway, those are great. That was a good conversation. Those were great examples. I don't see anybody arguing with those, but you know what? There'll be someone out there by the way. It's just going to say, are you crazy? They'll be a hundred people with their own fight of the year. They'll be caught in some amateur fight from the Polish golden gloves in Warsaw that we didn't see. But with that, let's talk about fighter of the year. There's a bunch of candidates here, but who do you like for fighter of the year? This one, I really do think that there's only one. I think it's got to be evil of bevel beeville. He pronounced in his name for the new column Dmitry beeville. Yeah, so people I don't see it being anyone else. I mean, he goes and he beats Canelo, you know, even though I convincingly convincingly he probably wins 11 out of 12 rounds and he wins by two points, so oh my God. But jeez, hopefully that could change in her new year, but don't hold your breath on it. I had a chance. But I can't see anyone else can vivo beating not only Canelo if that was a good enough he also beats the undefeated Gilberto Ramirez, who is a former super middleweight champion. Who moved up, maybe a runner up for me would be Devin Haiti, who kept bozos twice in a row. You know, not just that he can't bos who beat who did beat Lopez to your female Lopez who's in the downward spiral now. But not only that, but this is a guy I mean he had to go to Australia and his home twice. He had beat him back to back. Back to back, twice in the first time without his father was not allowed there to the last second was allowed there to train with him where he went over there because of a Visa situation. So I don't know. I got to consider haney up there runner up, but there's really only one winner. I can't see. I know people find anything to argue over and to disagree with over. But for me, as a sure, just the sure shot winner in that category, what do you think, Ken? I agree with you. I was going to say I had those two guys written down in the men's and in the women's I had clarissa shields and Katie Taylor and Amanda. Again, you stole my thunder, saw you so no, no, but it's good. It's good. It's good. But definitely definitely. Definitely I'm kissing and waving goodbye to my family that is going out. My son, one of the things I made it a great new year. Was I have my whole family here that he's been working, of course, an NFL with the radius of the last 14 years, 12 over there, two years for Cleveland. And this is the first year in many, many, many, many years. He got here for Christmas. They were here for Christmas and new year's. We had a whole family here, my three grandchildren, our three grandchildren, teddy del forth, Joseph and Mara,

"Editing centric, don't look up from the editing God Hank corwin, like I loves a cut. Joe walker for dune, Pamela Martin, for king Richard, Peter sebastis for The Power of the Dog, and Myron kirstein and Andrew Weiss Blum for tick tick boom. Interesting set here, this is a category that is widely considered very indicative of the strength of a film if the film does not have a best film editing nomination. It's believed that it's going to be a tough road to best picture. You'll notice that there is no coda in this category. I find that fascinating. I don't have a super strong feel for this one, Joe, because king Richard won the ace Eddie award a few weeks ago and I didn't see that coming. And so now to The Power of the Dog is the ostensible best picture favorite does it have editing really its strength in its story? I think there's a strong case to make for it and I might make it right here, but I'm a little bit stumped on this one. What are you thinking? I think king Richard was an interesting win of these. I think when you think about dramatizing a game of tennis, which shouldn't be hard, you know, plenty of people tune in to watch high stakes tennis, but I think there's something to be said for that between sports and war movies. I feel like those two things tend to feel like flashy, interesting. I think tick tick boom. I mean, I don't think it's a FrontRunner, but I think editing wise tick to boom is actually pretty interesting. I think a power of the dog has some precursors in its favor, but again, I think dune deserves to run these craft categories. I think it deserves this Mad Max glory in that regard if it's not going to get best picture. So I will go with my heart and I'm saying dune to win and that dune should win. Do you mind if we just look at some previous best film editing winners? Yeah. Because this is a, it's an unusually important category, like I said. So the winner last year was Sound of Metal. The winner of the year before that was Ford.

"And I would lie it on his welding skills, tremendously, to go and build me instruments made out of. He has I call it an unholy alliance with Boeing and Lockheed and other people who built spacecraft, et cetera. Because everything he built, he built out of recycled metal. And the metal is usually things that we can't even pronounce. So we didn't even know exist. And so he builds these vast instruments and these vast instruments recite in his house, which again is spilled as the whole house is a musical instrument. So it's not like you say, can you never out and can you quickly play this line for me? It's not like that at all. It's like. It's a bit like turning the Titanic around on any big except. Fire up the house. We're going to go to the clubs. I know. You know? So when I say impossible part of it, it's impossible to explain, but part of it is, it's a possible to actually, I really got the knee, I just forgot to tell it. There's the shot of the bagpipe player in the film. But what you hear is not the bagpipes at first. What you hear is actually the phenomenal guitarist Guthrie govern, okay, admittedly he's got it. But the sound here is an electric guitar. Imitating brilliantly irritating bagpipes. And then, yes, there are 30 bagpipe players in a church in Edinburgh, and all that stuff. But at the end of the day, the impossible truly impossible sound is the sound of a flower caught less voice. She became like the call for me of this movie, you know? And what she does is I know this. I mean, it's so close to damaging her voice forever. So. Nobody came along on this one just for the right. Everybody was totally committed. I mean, suiting in the desert is not for the fate of heart. So I've heard. So I've heard. I'm curious also, you know, you also recorded this score at a very strange time in our history, and you had to do so over a number of continents and had to use zoom. And I think people imagine the work of someone like yourself, and I think if you're not standing in front of the orchestra, you're behind a glass booth that is observing the orchestra and telling them where to go and where to move, and that wasn't what you had to do here. Can you just talk about how that was different and what was good about that or what was not so good about that? A bit before COVID before Friday of that started. I really made up my mind that I wanted to make it this chamber to go out with and I felt the reckless teenager in me felt that I needed equally reckless music who would play each note however weird with complete commitment. That was the only way we're going to get away with it. So I had my band together and I knew these people well and they knew me well. So I think that was right. I mean, if you need to if you need to look at a timeline that one of my researchers have been working with society in 78, Joe walker editor, we worked together for the first time, created chaos while the likely. In 1988, and so there was something good about we knew each actually vital. I don't think we could have done it, had not known each other. So that because the zoom is not a good way to communicate with it. I mean, it's like it's like a cheap year, it's a difference between a cheap hamburger and a really good steak or whatever. I don't know. A decent bottle of wine or something that can tell us a plastic thing, right? It pretends that we are communicating on a human level, but we're not really. We pretend we are looking into each other's eyes, but we're not really because there's a time delay. And it's these tiny time delays that ruin any communication. So that's just to say, yes, we worked across many continents and it was, it was, it could have been difficult, had we not known each other so well. In a funny way, having made up my mind beforehand that it was going to be an orchestral score because I felt that was inappropriate. But the groundwork, and the intellectual conceit of the whole thing was already there. Actually, actually helped. So basically what happened, we just moved to the studio and we cleared out the sitting room and my sitting room became my studio and my daughter still says that she has saddle cowboys, PTSD, because 5 30 in the morning, a little girl comes out and goes daddy. I got a good school tomorrow. So yeah, you know, it's the idea, the idea of us working together and luckily Denis and I mean, we knew each other well enough. That communication was made. I wanted to ask you about that a bit actually because, you know, forgive me for framing it this way, but you are very, very, very, very well known in your field, you are extraordinarily successful. You have been widely celebrated. And so when you're on a project, even if you're working. Well, even if you're working with someone as decorated and admired as Denis, what happens when you compose something or suggest something and he says, no, and then is there do you have a battle of the egos? How do you communicate through a disagreement creatively? Actually, it's a good question which doesn't apply, but I will answer it nonetheless. Because we never we never we never disagreed. What I found through all the movies I've done is that I think my way through, very carefully. I built an intellectual construct. I am an architect at Harvard as a person. And then very often I write a piece of music and some house at this to me sometimes. He said, you know, because I say to him, yeah, God, I sit there like two weeks sometimes to write 8 notes. Why does it take me two weeks to write 8 notes? Because well, you just haven't gotten it. You haven't gotten the film under your fingers yet. And I thought that was a really good, simple way of saying it. And so the same thing happens..

"Yeah. No, so I'm an elder. Getting this type of learning opportunities from these different elders. I'm very privileged and honored to have learned from these elders. What do you want to do with this information? Now that I want to help, I want to help other veterans because Joe walker was a Korean War veteran. And he's the only and he's the only veteran military veteran of all the elders. Because the others were holy men. But with these four cardinal virtues, I want to do a video that will help these veterans because our youth, we're taught these from offering from a very young age all through life than when we went through our. Time period to be it to be to be a man, these virtues are stuck in their head. And they know how to build a true warrior. And that's why this is one because of these virtues, these are the reasons why the Lakota ovila who have never had PTSD issues. Never had never had PTSD issues. No, because of these because of these virtues. And I know for a fact these virtues could help. Lieutenant Kelsey was in a 101st at the same time you were correct? I made him twice over there. Really? Did you? I'm at the PX one time. And he's a big guy. And as a spider and order the main PX the headquarters at camp eagle, this is the headquarters for a 101st. And excuse me, I said, I'm bob primoz it from the stand up in North Dakota. And it turned out to turn around. I saw that gold bar on his collar segment lieutenant. Excuse me. When I was a pretty well known as NFL player at the time, he was rookie of the year for that for the Buffalo Bills. Oh, wow, okay. See, I have no idea I had no idea. Wow. And the guy that took his place as alignment offensive lineman is in Hall of Fame now. So lieutenant counsel, he did pass in Vietnam, correct? Yes, he was killed in a Firebase group court. You have made it your mission almost to honor him? Yeah. But I wrote a letter and I started writing letters in 2016 or 2016 to the NFL to the NFL Hall of Fame that there are 5 veterans who basically didn't have to didn't have to go to work. And these gentlemen should deserve some type of recognition by the NFL Hall of Fame. Yeah, I read your paper that you sent to me or your letter that you sent to the Hall of Fame on behalf of them. You had a very large logical example with the NHL. Like at the NHL has done something similar for what you're advocating. Correct? Yeah. So you used? I used as an example I used hobie baker as an example. And who's home? National Hockey League. Now, that was before my time your time correct. Hope we baker was like, who would you? We're talking World War I. Oh my gosh. I mean, it wasn't a Hall of Famer by merit, but they made him a Hall of Famer by a special section for service members. And that's kind of what your advocate with the NFL? Yeah. Got you. Well, there's the 5 pat Tillman is one of them. Yep. I can't remember the names of the three other gentlemen. Gotcha. But you did your research and you include them in your letter. Yeah. But one gentleman and World War II and he regime, he got the Medal of Honor. Yeah. And his dying words to his doctor. His dying words, the New York Jets. The New York Giants lost her last a good end today. He was offensive in. Heck of a receiver. Those were your dying words to the doctor. Wow. Well, Robert, I'd like to I'd like to leave a parting shot for, you know, I think you have a strong message with the Lakota virtues. I think you have a lot to say for veterans. Robert is there, is there anything else that you would like to say or to our listeners that you think would be important to share? Time will heal time will heal, but if you think about the virtues, they will help. Bravery, generosity, fortitude, and the most important of.

"And that's probably three or four years old. Bravery, generosity, fortitude, and the most important is wisdom. My uncle, David Harrison. Korean War veteran. He was in artillery and they were overrun. And he was taken as a captive by the North Koreans. And but he was taught these four virtues 49 or 50 before the Korean War. And when he thought I was going to create two elders spotted horse and red fox. My grandfather took my uncle. Down to see them on the banks of the grand river in South Dakota on the reservation. And the banks, the banks of the grand river was right near a sitting bull's cabin. His cabin is still there. No, no, it was taken to his cabin was taken to the Chicago world's fair. Got you. I forget the year. But at this point, it was on the reservation still. Yes. Okay. You know, and spotted horse and red fox went through these four virtues with uncle David. And you know, when he was a captive in the North Korean prison camp, him and him and a Japanese American they escaped in the middle of winter. And they made it back to American lines. They escaped North Korea from a North Korean North Korean prison camp. Oh my gosh. And when I got orders for Vietnam, I was at my grandma's ranch among leave who did leave before I went to Vietnam. And within the last week of my going to Vietnam, my grandma's uncle David shows up. He says, bob, let's go for a walk. So we look for a walk on the ranch, you know, around the pasture and stuff. He said, bob, I'm gonna tell you all the story about about me, but I want to be when I went to Korea. So he told me about the four card over issues. And he said, if one mental for no virtues, he never would have never would have made it. And he never would have survived afterwards. One for these four virtues on a committed suicide. And so we talked about them. And because we were both in combat units. Yeah. At this point, he was like, hey, let's me share this with you. Yeah. Yeah, so for Bruce's were very important to me when I went over there. Being in a comment unit and I tried to live by the virtues in Vietnam. So he attributes these virtues to not committing suicide after combat? Yeah. He was a POW fan for about 6 or 7 months. Oh wow. So in your talks that you gave back probably around 2011, 2012 seemed like to me you were trying to reintroduce or talk about these virtues a lot because you think it could help other veterans. Yeah. On the radio. Getting these across, even with the definitions. Yeah. Travel definition is not dictionary definitions. Yeah, it seems like from what you sent me. The definition of generosity is a very much different, a very different definition than what I would read. Like I said a dictionary. Yeah. These are tribal definitions. You said something about of if you have two, you always give away one. Yeah. Travel physical property didn't really mean a lot, but if you gave something away to help somebody, that that was the ultimate. You were considered a better person. To help somebody else. In bravery, it seems like, you know, bravery is almost a traditional style bravery except for more close than far away. These aren't written down anywhere correct except for what you've written me or you could probably find them on the Internet. Yeah. And about traditional values of the Lakota. Yeah. So something like that to do a search search engine. Okay. But to really get the proper meaning of it, it's going to come from an elder. Understood. And you were taught these not only by your uncle, but you also had like you said in the 90s you got to really get in touch with your culture, your family. You were taught by some people that have some pretty strong lineage correct. Yes. One of the most important people in my life when it comes to something like the virtues was Isaac dog eagle, who is the eldest great eldest great grandson of sitting bull. Oh, wow. And my grand my great grandfather, Louis primo is sitting with interpreter. Yeah. So that's what brought Isaac and I close. And Isaac, Gary, Gary came back through reservation one time. Yeah. Twice, I think. Isaac adopted us his brothers. Adopted us as his eldest sons. Yeah. And Isaac passed away a few years ago. But he said Joe walker, who was the illustrate eldest great grandson of rain in the face. I'm familiar with sitting bull, I'm familiar with crazy horse. Rein in the face sounds familiar to me, but I don't remember what his role was. Reading the face was one of the principal commanders of the soon the Cheyenne at the little bithorn. Understand. Okay. The indoctrination, how does that start? How long does it last? What is it like to be in the presence of elders like that? Is it unique? Is it yeah, it's really unique. It's really unique because now all these elders have passed on. Yeah. And I'm one of the few people I would say the only one living that has studied under these elders. Up from different Sue tribes. Oliver rig cloud is the grandson of the red cloud. So how did you come to be in presence of these men, how did I mean? We just sit and listen. And with tool walker, even I would Sydney's house, we'd have coffee. And we started to start talking and when you talk to an elderly listen. Yeah. And Isaac dog eagle would tell me a story about my grandfather and Buffalo Bill. And before this you didn't know you were related to them or because you told me earlier on I had no idea. Oh, wow. So these elders are the ones that trace the family histories, almost. Isaac did. Wow. You can't really do research on the Internet when you come.

More than six million people are living with alzheimer's and with an ageing population. That number is expected to double by twenty fifty. The disease robs people of their memories and ability to care for themselves and scientists have struggled to find a cure. Our colleague joe walker who covers biotech says. That's because of how little we know about the disease. We don't really understand how alzheimer's works. We don't really understand all the complexity that drives this disease we know that it's multifamily to'real and we know that there's a lot of things happening that combine to give people this thing that we call alzheimer's but we don't understand it any sort of way. Are there any drugs available for alzheimer's patients. There are drugs available for alzheimer's disease and they work okay. What they do is improve your symptoms a little bit for limited periods of time but the thing is is that none of these drugs really get at the underlying causes pathology of the disease getting at the underlying cause of alzheimer's is what drugmakers have been trying to do for decades and they've mostly been pursuing one scientific theory the amyloid theory when people with alzheimer's die. Doctors find a sticky protein inside brains which is called amyloid pharma. Companies have tried to create drugs that target the substance and try to get rid of it. That's where this new drug just approved by the fda comes in it's called at helm and it's made by the drugmaker biogen but two years ago in two thousand nineteen. Things looked really different for biogen. At that time. It seemed like this drug would never see the light of day via john. Shares are tumbling this morning. This is big. News comes after the drug maker and japanese partner side discontinued late stage. Trials of an alzheimer's treatment biogen said we're stopping these trials because we looked at the data so far and the drug is not gonna work. Statistically they cannot just can't work out and it was. you know. Chalked up to eight another failure for alzheimer's and was was that kind of the nail in the coffin for their drug for all intents and purposes in the view of wall street of people in the alzheimer's community it was the now on the coffin. But then a few months later biogen said so. We looked at some new data that we didn't have at the time we cancelled these studies. And it actually looks like this drug is working. And we're going to seek approval for the drug because the data that we have now says that it's working and we think we have a good case to make to the fda regulators to get it approved.

"Said imagine if there was a tv series or or or a movie where there was a character and they like previously worked for the government in some social role like baker not superhero but like a like a james bond type thing like any yet. So it's a role and that person was retired. And then what happened was loads of people tend up and they all had superpowers and the started getting into couch control with the superpowers and destroying things and all sorts of stuff. And then this guy at tacoma a retirement and stop them and you do what ever talk to to get these. These superheroes shutting down quite similar to like the boys. Tv show was supposed. Yeah but he said if that if that sort of thing came out that main character would be seen to be the hero of tv series or something and he said that's pretty much what z. Marysville whereas he's been construed as being the villain bull acting kinda grasp pao people are are as as not being not being a villain. Potentially doing something right. And that's what we said isn't it. It's that clearly trying to. I think he was quite as sympathetic villain. Anyway in civil war they are now trying to put macarthur's clearly not being that by the guy which just changing lance from black and white to a great exactly which i think is when most people are in the series to be fact hawley joe walker of a real push and would like symbol. I agree. i don't like him either. I think the trying to blood lines a little bit with him and bookie as well too great to be when you said that is well. The fast thoughts i had was. If anyone can do it you could john yet. Yeah back in the place i've ever seen. Yeah that'd be boston. They should just do that. Because five or wherever heroes a bill for that.

You're going to have to draw a card because there's no way that we can write that much information on that little square where little brat pack cardboard cutout character lands on right and good and as set up right. Now there's no way to win because all of all of the spaces are You know like this hazards landing in jail or whatever right there there is no end.

Gilead Sciences stock rises on hopes for COVID-19 treatment
"With regards to that drug treatment. Shares of Gilead Sciences closed up five point seven percent after it reported that patients taking its antiviral drug rim. Desa VIR showed a speedier recovery than patients taking a placebo in a large study funded by the US government our health reporter Joe Walker has more details. People have been watching this trial really closely because it's a large study comparing this drug to placebo and it's sort of the gold standard for the way to do clinical trials. So the idea is. We think that it's the first and best sort of look at whether this truck really works treating Cova nineteen and if it does it could become the first road proven to actually be effective against this disease. A separate study of the drug out of China posted negative results today but researchers there say they needed more testing. Their trial was shut down early. Because it was hard to recruit subjects as the pandemic slowed analysts are still cautioning that the drug is unlikely to be a silver bullet. Obviously it would be really great if this works and cove in nineteen. I think the expectation though at this point is that if it does work. It's not the type of thing that everybody would get. If you've got the virus you know. It's an intravenously administered drug for people who are hospitalized so we can really make a difference in in helping people who are very very sick but isn't sort of the vaccine. It's not a pill so I would just say. Take some caution. There in terms of expectations for the magnitude of its impact
Canada; Worries about shortage of important drugs
"Sanders is very familiar with the visit Canada drill he started medical caravans from his home state Vermont back in nineteen ninety nine Sanders use the opportunity this time to stress that Canada has controls on pharmaceuticals that drive down prices ones that also drive up literally the queen nice rooms to Canada to buy them but this latest trips have struck a nerve nice from has gotten slams by Canadians on social media for taking their medications the biggest criticism as they believe that we are going to create a shortage shortages are already an issue even at the very pharmacy that nice from and Sanders visit the old Walkerville pharmacy why hello hi this is Jon hi good morning yes it is pharmacist John Gerdes was bringing people up at the register that day like it was good because you know they were very happy and grateful with insulin an issue for you to provides of people that you would normally expect coming into your pharmacy we do our own issues with drug shortages but in doing so far has not been one of them Curtis and other say insolence not actually under threat of running out it's a very basic drug but he does worry because other medicines are getting scarce blood pressure medication from diabetes medication does have gone missing and Canada pharmacies get their drugs through a central ordering system but lately some drugs have become unavailable shortages aren't unique to Canada but hospitals and patients across the country are nervous that a growing US appetite for their drugs could make things worse Joe Walker is with the Canadian pharmacist association one of our biggest concerns is with exacerbating drug shortages in Canada not being able to respond to the demands of both Canadian patients as well as American patients a total of fifteen hospital patient and pharmacy groups have issued a letter urging the Canadian government to protect their drug supply here's the reason for U. S. states have passed measures that would make it a lot easier to import drugs wholesale from Canada and to order them online and last week the White House announced plans to make doing just that easier enter hill is a pharmacology fellow at Liverpool university in the UK he says any unexpected surge in demand can put a strain on manufacturers so you can get drunk shoes to choose sometimes because health source he doesn't order the right amount and suddenly it won't smoke more truck the pharmaceutical industry is totally against price controls they say it's a disincentive to developing new therapies and some companies have simply stopped making some inexpensive trucks that have been around for decades but hill is wary of the idea that lower drug prices could create shortages you look at the systems in the United Kingdom and across Europe which replaces the four times lower than the United States but we still able to produce is supplied is trucks very reliably cannot US population is about the size of California it only makes up two percent of the global drug market so what's this potential mass exportation of drugs from Canada that some health advocates really fear it's not the caravans of patients making the occasional trip across the border Gwen nice from the Minnesota in with diabetes who leads some of these strips can attest on our second trip we had a free fifty five passenger bus going from Minneapolis all the way to London Ontario okay we have fifteen people on that bus they couldn't fill the seats she says people
