One of the groups, which I hope is coming to testify later today, is the Canadian Lyme foundation. But I consulted with and am very grateful for support from the College of Family Physicians of Canada, and I will be able to share their letter once I've translated it. It will come before the end of the hearing portion of this legislation.
I also have consulted with the Canadian Medical Association, as well as with many individual doctors. I have consulted and met with a clinic that deals with Lyme disease in Vancouver. Allison Bested runs it. It's called the complex chronic diseases program at the BC Women's Hospital and Health Centre. I have met with her. Her centre was created to help patients with these complex diseases. In addition to Lyme disease, that centre deals with chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. As you can imagine, the symptoms may look similar, but the treatments are different. It's really a complex set of issues that we have here for diagnosis.
So I've talked to everybody I can talk to who has expertise in the issue.
