Bernie Sanders plans trip to Canada with group seeking cheaper insulin

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.
