Mr. Speaker, this issue is not about jurisdiction; it is about the Conservatives not paying attention and not showing leadership. The fact is that the minister has refused to stand up and show the leadership that is required on this crisis.
The provinces are calling for the minister to act. Patient advocates and health professionals are calling on the minister to act. Will the minister admit that her voluntary plan has failed?
The Conservatives must expedite the Health Canada approval process and also guarantee the safety of Canadians.
When will the Conservatives listen to Canadians, not deny what is going on, and lead the effort to end these shortages?
