In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Social Affairs, Science and Technology - September 24, 2014


Conservative MP Terence Young testifies as the committee begins its hearings on legislation aimed at protecting consumers from unsafe medications and therapeutic products. The MP is also the founder of Drug Safety Canada. Bill C-17 is known as Vanessa's Law in honour of Young's 15-year-old daughter, who died in 2000 of a heart attack caused by a prescription drug that later was deemed unsafe and removed from the market. Also appearing are Alies Maybee from Patients Canada, Janet Currie with the Psychiatric Medication Awareness Group, and Christine Janus from the Best Medicines Coalition. (September 24, 2014)
