Mr. Speaker, too many Canadian families will have to deal with Alzheimer's. I know it only too well. My mother suffered from it before she died.
We are ill-prepared to deal with this debilitating diseases that puts pressure on caregivers and our health care system. There will be 1.5 million affected within a generation.
Dementia costs over $33 billion a year. These costs could escalate to $293 billion a year.
Will the Conservatives agree with the NDP and act now?
