In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Social Affairs, Science and Technology - October 9, 2014


Senators conduct their clause-by-clause consideration of Bill C-17, which will amend the Food and Drugs Act. The bill is also 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 bill includes measures to require mandatory adverse drug reaction reporting, allow the federal government to recall unsafe products, and compel drug companies to revise labels to clearly reflect health risk information.
