Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to welcome today to our nation's capital six members of the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame. Although we are very pleased to have the physical presence of London as the hall of fame the talent comes from across our diverse land.
Dr. Henry Barnett from London has been recognized for his work in stroke and clinical trials.
Dr. Douglas Harold Copp from Vancouver discovered the hormone calcitonin which regulates calcium levels in the blood.
Dr. Jacques Genest from Montreal has been recognized for his research on hypertension.
Dr. Herbert Jasper from Montreal has been recognized for his work in electrophysiology and EEG.
Dr. Charles Leblond from Montreal has been recognized for his research in anatomy and cell biology.
Dr. Robert Salter from Toronto has been recognized for his work in orthopedic surgery.
These individuals are our best and brightest. It is a wonderful and fitting tribute that they are here today. We owe them an immense debt of gratitude. I encourage all members to show their gratitude.
