Mr. Speaker, the suggestion that such events might be occurring with blood banks was first raised some 15 years ago. At that time there were various studies and they all indicated that there was no health risk. Since then additional studies have confirmed the same findings.
Last week Greenpeace claimed to have other information and last week I directed my officials to meet with the Greenpeace representatives and to take information from them.
We will look at it, obviously with great care. I assure the member that if there is any evidence to indicate that safety is an issue we will act appropriately.
