In Committee from the House of Commons - Health - June 5, 2014


Federal Health Minister Rona Ambrose presents amendments to the Food and Drugs Act, Bill C-17. The proposed amendments include the power to require information, tests or studies, require a label change and recall unsafe therapeutic products. The Protecting Canadians from Unsafe Drugs Act, also called Vanessa's Law, is named after Conservative MP Terence Young's daughter Vanessa, who tragically died of a heart attack at the age of 15 while on a prescription drug that later was deemed not safe and removed from the market.
Officials from the Department of Health, Supriya Sharma, Anne Lamar and David K. Lee, also respond to questions from the committee members. (June 5, 2014)
