Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister is about to meet here in Ottawa with South Africa's president, Thabo Mbeki.
Mbeki was instrumental in the WTO agreement to allow generic drugs to flow to developing nations to treat the millions suffering from HIV-AIDS, TB, malaria and other deadly diseases.
Canada engaged in much self-congratulations about being the first country to amend our patent laws but the world is still waiting.
With rumours about a UN appointment for the Prime Minister, he should be more committed than ever to implementing this legacy.
Will the Prime Minister promise that Parliament will not rise until this life saving legacy is firmly in place?
