Visit to the Centre for Emergency Preparedness and Response

In May of 2009, I was invited by the Honourable Leona Aglukkaq, Minister of Health, to sponsor Bill C-11 (Human Pathogens and Toxins Act) in the Senate of Canada.

I was involved in many briefings, including a special tour of the Centre for Emergency Preparedness and Response (http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/cepr-cmiu/). There, I met with the numerous professionals who are responsible for coordinating Canada's health security issues.
