In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Social Affairs, Science and Technology - October 1, 2014


Senators continue their study of Bill C-17, which 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. The proposed legislation seeks to strengthen Canada's drug-monitoring system.

Jim Keon of the Canadian Generic Pharmaceutical Association, Gerry Harrington, from Consumer Health Products Canada, Klaus Stitz of MEDEC and Walter Robinson and Jared Rhines from Rx&D outline the roles of their respective organizations and discuss the bill.
