What Is The Next Step CCSVI/MS Patients Should Take??



Read the comments left on this page or add yours.
Posted by Judy Butcher (Jasper) on 02 July 2011

Dear Liberal MP's, and Senators,

MS Patients need to know, in light of recent developments with CCSVI/MS, and the Minister of Health's announcement that Canada will fund CCSVI trials, what should MS Patients do now?

As so much time has already been wasted, and as the rest of the World has tested CCSVI treatment adequately enough, we believe, to say that CCSVI Venoplasty works, and could save many lives; we believe that many people should be treated SOON (NOW). Time is critical when dealing with MS.

Would you please give us some direction as expediently as possible? Is it possible for something to be done prior to Parliament reconvening? This really should be dealt with ASAP. Is the Government really content to just let more people die? What can be done?

4 Days Work Week in Canada - Why haven't we opt for that yet?

30 Aug, 2011 | By OATRICK | " I am a proud Canadian. I love our country. However I feel Canada needs a four day work week like France. Even our country to the south of us may introduce a four day work week in certain states.

Canadian Armed Forces pensions

26 Aug, 2011 | By Craig | Are an absolute mess. Clawbacks at a certain age, overshadowed by medical pensions which are of no real tangible value (they devalue the regular pension, resulting in no real net gain for a medical condition, say, like a blown off limb), and a faulty and flawed Veterans Affairs portfolio.

Preservation of Canadian Lighthouses

5 Jul, 2011 | By Michel | I read with interest the report of the Senate on the above subject.
