Tomorrow, Thursday May 6, 2010 at 07:30 a.m. there will be a meeting in Ottawa of the PARLIAMENTARY SUB COMMITTEE ON NEUROLOGICAL HEALTH in room 209, West Block
The topic is CCSVI.
I understand that the main purpose of the meeting will be for the MS Society to request money from the government for lengthy studies regarding CCSVI and MS.
One independent Canadian Citizen will be speaking (for 5 minutes) about the urgent need for all Canadians at risk for CCSVI to have immediate access to screening, and to the services of Vascular specialists to advise on any necessary treatment.
This lone individual will ask the committee to:
1) Notify provincial health authorities that it is a violation of the Canada Health Act to withhold vascular medical services from a group of individuals based on the fact that they have multiple sclerosis.
2) Advise the Canadian and Provincial Medical Associations that they must immediately advise their membership to cease the practice of discriminating against persons with multiple sclerosis by denying them access to the services of vascular specialists.
3) Take immediate action to ensure that those most affected are offered immediate screening and treatment on compassionate grounds while tasking the researchers for the committee with a scientific review of all relevant vascular studies, to report back to the committee before the end of May.
The meeting is open to the public and the press.
More importantly ANY INDIVIDUAL OR ORGANIZATION CAN MAKE A WRITTEN SUBMISSION TO THIS COMMITTEE.
