Reports suggest that Canadian Blood Services (CBS) is making a deal with Spanish big pharma corporation Grifols to privatize blood plasma collection services. 1

If CBS signs a contract with Grifols — the world’s largest plasma producer — it could allow this mega-corporation to collect plasma from Canadians that they could then sell back to CBS at a profit.

That's not all. Privatizing plasma collection could allow the multinational pharmaceutical company to prop up clinics in poorer neighbourhoods and exploit poor people to sell their plasma so that they can manufacture expensive drugs for massive profits. It's exactly what's happening in the US.2

CBS doesn't get a lot of public attention — which means they're more susceptible to public pressure. A massive public outcry, right now, while the deal is being negotiated could convince them to reverse their decision and stop the privatization of our plasma collection services. Add your name to the petition now.
 

To the Canadian Blood Services:

Call off the deal with Griflos: keep blood plasma collection services public.
