"I think it's devastating for MS patients," said Liberal public health critic Kirsty Duncan. "This is a body-blow to a lot of people that think this treatment really works."
Duncan said the hundreds of Canadians already travelling to get the surgical treatment in Bulgaria, Poland and India should be tracked to determine if the Italian-developed procedure works.
"If Canada wants to know if this works, why are we not tracking the patients that go overseas?" she said. "We have to have evidence-based medicine and we're not collecting the evidence."
