TORONTO — American presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders says he’s coming to Canada with a group of diabetics to buy cheaper insulin.
The Vermont senator says in a tweet he’ll make the trip this month.
Insulin in Canada is about one-tenth of the price in the U.S.
Sanders made a similar medication trip to Canada in 1999.
Last last month, a group of diabetics from Minnesota travelled to London, Ont., to buy insulin.
The drug tourism has sparked some concern about supplies in Canada.
