Mr. Speaker, measles and pertussis are fatal. A generation ago, diphtheria and polio caused death and disabilities. Vaccinations eradicated these diseases, but now in parts of Canada 40% of children are not vaccinated, putting themselves and others at risk.
The Prime Minister silences scientists who disagree with his ideology, so telling parents to listen to scientists and vaccinate is not credible. He must act.
Will he use some of the millions he spends on self-promotional ads towards a public education campaign on the scientific benefits of vaccination?
