Kirsty Duncan wins Etobicoke again!

Postby 1eye » Mon Oct 19, 2015 8:48 pm

Kirsty Duncan has worked tirelessly in Opposition as a Liberal MP in Canadian Parliament, on behalf of all Canadians with MS, and put forward a private member's bill to support CCSVI. Now that her party has formed a majority government, we may see this Bill become a Liberal government Bill, and law of the land.

Thank goodness we are finally rid of Stephen Harper. Good luck to Justin Trudeau.

Don't you think you might be a bit naïve putting faith in a politician regarding this? After all we can't even get the doctors on the same page. :?

Nope. Probably all you have to do is read her webpages to see she is one of the hardest working politicians and scientists you've ever seen. She should be PM. The fly in the ointment is whether she is given the freedom and power necessary to be effective. She does have a head start, having already gotten a Bill on CCSVI through second reading...

She is science minister. With this portfolio she will be able to help us...

Happy for you and your country, 1eye!!! :YMPARTY: :-BD :YMHUG:
For those who don't know her, here's Kirsty Duncan speaking out on the necessity of CCSVI science and brain research, in a video message to the 2014 Canadian neurovascular health conference.
https://www.facebook.com/CanadianNeurov ... 965489267/

As the author of a bill to rigorously investigate CCSVI, (without pharma's interference), she is a known advocate. She is a scientist, has a doctorate degree, and understands bias. Having had the pleasure of meeting her and speaking with her at the 2013 Canadian CCSVI conference, I can say that I am THRILLED that Canadians have this brilliant, compassionate and energetic woman as their Minister of Science! She's the real deal. Here's to better days.

Dr. Jock Murray had some contentious words to say on the subject of Kirsty Duncan's support of CCSVI in light of her new appointment.

“Perhaps if she were to revisit her former comments and championing of CCSVI, as others have done, and would issue a statement to that effect,” Dr. Murray said, “she would regain some credibility in the eyes of scientists.”

Duncan’s office did not reply to repeated requests for comment.

Ouch! I'm sure she can handle this though.

Participants on one online MS forum recently called Duncan a “brilliant, compassionate and energetic woman.”

Where have I read that? I've read that somewhere.... (two posts up)
:-D

Well, you know Kirsty Duncan has been raked over coals before. She even wrote a book partly about that.

She is a politician who is used to the wrong-headed drivel that often comes from the press. The previous PM would have laughed at the press. This one has invited them in.

There is another side to this story other than the one being offered as gospel by the likes of Jock Murray, and she is already well acquainted with the so-called scientific consensus being given in some publications. She is a scientist, and people who accuse her of anything unscientific had better be careful. A minister of the Canadian government is a very powerful individual.

There is in Canada a growing awareness of CCSVI. People who have MS and their loved ones and caregivers are not well-served by misrepresentations and falsehoods such as the ones contained in this article.

According to Zamboni’s theory, MS is caused by a congestion of blood in the brain caused by congested veins (current established theories attribute MS to a combination of genetic and environmental factors). To treat this congestion, Zamboni proposed a procedure some call “liberation therapy,” in which stents or angioplasty balloons are used to open the veins leading from the brain—an operation that is neither approved by Health Canada or the FDA.


Neither Health Canada nor the FDA have specifically outlawed it, as it has obvious merit. A large number of MS patients in Canada have already had it.

According to anybody who knows anything about CCSVI, MS is not caused by anything of the sort. It has not been called anything of the sort for at least five years. Nobody uses stents for CCSVI.

Many peer-reviewed studies have found no relationship between CCSVI, liberation therapy, and MS.


No studies anywhere have found any relationship between "liberation therapy" and anything, ever. The rest of that statement is hopelessly garbled, but just for the record, a lot of science shows that CCSVI is real, can be very bad for you (including your heart), and has symptoms that are often confused with MS. Additionally, many MS sufferers have benefited from the procedure. This fact is known by anyone who works with MS patients in Canada, in spite of its suppression here. It has been suppressed by the actions of a few people and their paid lawyers here in Canada. That will soon change.

“Perhaps if she were to revisit her former comments and championing of CCSVI, as others have done, and would issue a statement to that effect,” Dr. Murray said, “she would regain some credibility in the eyes of scientists.


She has plenty. She does not need to regain any. Ask a real scientist.

Duncan’s office did not reply to repeated requests for comment.


Well, I do believe at least that much.

P.S. I got my solar panel rooftop going and my roof now earns $3.80 per hour ($0.38 /kWh for 10 kW), while the sun shines. Twice as much as I made in 1969 in my first job.
