Mr. Speaker, I would like to let the member know that Health Canada is committed to this community. She mentioned in her question at the beginning about the physicians' complaints. I would like to let her know that Health Canada's physicians, like all physicians in the country, have a professional obligation to consult the regulatory body when they have concerns about the conduct of their peers
The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta has not concluded its investigation nor has it released its finding regarding complaints made by Health Canada physicians. These findings are expected shortly.
Health Canada respects the authority of the college to investigate and to rule on this complaint without the interference of the House of Commons.
I am encouraged to work together with the member. The health of this community is very important to all members of the House.
