In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Social Affairs, Science and Technology - September 25, 2014

Two panels of health researchers and academics share their thoughts on legislation that seeks to strengthen Canada's drug-monitoring system. Bill C-17 is known as Vanessa's Law in honour of Conservative MP Terence 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. Appearing are Amir Attaran (University of Ottawa), Elaine Gibson (Dalhousie University), Matthew Herder (Dalhousie University), Dr. Joel Lexchin (York University), and Dr. Stuart MacLeod (University of British Columbia).
