I wrote the BC Provincial Health Minister way back in June suggesting that British Columbia is contravening the Canada Health Act because it is denying investigation and treatment of CCSVI, a recognized medical condition.
I got a reply July 9th ignoring my CHA suggestion but giving me all the other official reasons that CCSVI is not recognized for treating MS.
I know there are some really intelligent people reading this site and the discussion surrounding the Ontario situation confirms this.
ANYONE HAVE ANY INPUT RE; THE CANADA HEALTH ACT AND WHAT'S HAPPENING ?? Love to hear input and discussion because I think it's time I wrote the Province again and asked for their reply.
PS: Harry, yes the head is already hurting
We have already booked my wife for treatment, but I still believe we need to fight the way this potential breakthrough in treatment has been handled here in Canada by the Federal Government, The Provincial Governments, the MS Society of Canada, the Colleges of Physicians & Surgeons, and now by the CIHR - see topic in TiMS re the Report from them and MSSC (and where does the MS Society have the right to be involved in medical decisions - they're a non-medical support group for MS sufferers but have morphed themselves into experts on the venous system )
