Statement made on 14 May 2009 by Senator Catherine Callbeck

Hon. Catherine S. Callbeck:

Honourable senators, my question is to the Leader of the Government in the Senate. In September 2006, the federal, provincial and territorial ministerial task force on the National Pharmaceuticals Strategy released its progress report. That report contained many recommendations about the various steps to follow to implement this strategy. It was agreed by the health ministers of the federal, provincial and territorial governments to proceed with the second phase in December of that year.

That was roughly two and a half years ago. Can the Leader of the Government in the Senate give a progress update on this National Pharmaceuticals Strategy?
