Mr. Speaker, Canadians who are facing cancer are under tremendous stress. The shutdown of Chalk River has adversely affected the necessary supply of medical isotopes that 5,000 patients a day in Canada need. The government faced a similar situation a year and a half ago. It said then, never again.
Where was the planning to head off this interruption in the supply of medical isotopes when lives are at stake? Concerning is not good enough.
Why are the Conservative so incompetent?
