The committee considers two bills during the meeting. Conservative MP Rob Nicholson and his Liberal colleague Rob Oliphant first discuss their private member’s bill (C-233) to create a national dementia strategy. Pauline Tardif, chief executive officer of the Alzheimer Society of Canada, testifies alongside the two MPs.
The committee conducts its clause-by-clause consideration of the bill following the panel.
Conservative Senator Nancy Greene Raine then presents her bill prohibiting food and beverage marketing directed at children under 13. Bill S-228 would amend the Food and Drugs Act. (June 1, 2017)
