Mr. Speaker, I would like to inform the House that the inaugural induction of the first 10 laureates to the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame took place on Friday, May 27, 1994 in London, Ontario.
This is an opportunity to pay tribute to Dr. Charles Drake, a world renowned London neurosurgeon, and the nine other eminent recipients of these awards.
Their exceptional achievements in their respective fields and their contributions to medicine in general have culminated in their induction into the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame.
These Canadians reached the pinnacle of their professions and achieved breakthroughs in their fields of expertise thus contributing to the advancement of science. They have also contributed to the understanding of disease, leading to the improvement of the general health of people throughout the world. We thank and honour them for their work.
