Mr. Speaker, part of leadership is knowing when you are wrong and being big enough to change your mind.
Ontario changed course and compensated the Dionne quintuplets. Alberta admitted it was wrong on the sterilization issue and changed its position. The Irish government heard exactly the same arguments the minister has responded to and changed its mind. Many of these victims are so sick they could hardly come to parliament today.
Why is the health minister going to force these victims to sue him in court in order to get the compensation which is rightfully theirs?
